DESIGNED TO INSPIRE, CONNECT, CONVERGE AND DO BUSINESS
New Dutch Wave is an International movement to celebrate top notch Dutch creativity and entrepreneurship launched in 2017 at South by Southwest. A platform designed to inspire, connect and generate new business, New Dutch Wave is the place where Dutch entrepreneurs, creatives, start-ups, artists, as well as the Dutch government and our smartest cities will present themselves to a relevant international audience.
New Dutch Wave presents ambitious entrepreneurs to an international audience and embraces the continuous innovation that is so stereotypical for,- and lovely about, the creative industry. For this, NDW creates meeting points to connect like-minded people from all over the world.
Just as our immaculate inception with a new style trade mission to SXSW 2017, NDW does not go to a specific country, but it is present at places where these people do business.
From 8 till the 17th of March 2019, New Dutch Wave will be back at SXSW again, hosting two venues. On the Interactive trade show the New Dutch Wave booth will feature innovative start-ups, smart solutions being used by our cities and pitch events which will focus on connecting the dots. Our New Dutch Wave “take over” house in the center of Austin hosts inspiring talks, meet and greets, interactive panel discussions, innovative product demos, top performances & art installations and many great showcases, celebrating the convergence of the Dutch interactive, film, and music industries, alongside the SXSW program.
NDW has helped to connect many businesses, artists and entrepreneurs on an international level and will continue to do so.
New Dutch Wave was founded by WINK and Enterprise Summit, in collaboration with the Kingdom of the Netherlands’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Creative Holland.
