About New Dutch Wave

Designed to inspire, connect, converge and do business

New Dutch Wave is a new international movement to celebrate top notch Dutch creativity and entrepreneurship set to launch at SXSW17. 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 hosts two venues during SXSW17. 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 booth will be officially opened by HRH Prince Constantijn, Special envoy of StartupDelta on Sunday March 12th. Meanwhile, crossing over into music week, the New Dutch Wave house pops up downtown at the infamous Barbarella & Swan Dive venue; 615 Red River St, Austin.

Our NDW house 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. Join the New Dutch Wave in Austin this year and we will show you why you should look towards the Dutch for innovation, creativity, music, film and technological solutions.
