Quickly after finishing his masters in Maritime Engineer, Martijn Overs decided to found Swapfiets. Swapfiets is a succesfull scale-up. The concept is hiring a bike instead of buying a bike. As a student, you must have seen them around.
Everyone has an experience with a flat tire on a terrible moment or a bike taht gets stolen. Swapfiets solves this problem. When a part of the bike gets stuck, you can exchange your bike with another new one.
During his keynote he will highlight the early days as an entrepreneur and tell us the hardships of turning a start-up into a well known scale-up!
Tom Houter, as many of you, studied at the TU Delft! During his bachelor Mechanical Engineering, he was also part of the first team working on the Hardt Hyperloop.
Hardt Hyperloop is working tirelessly to disrupt the transport industry with an innovative and sustainable mode of transport for long distance travel. The Hardt Hyperloop causes zero CO2 emissions: it uses less energy per passenger than train or airplane and is completely powered by renewable electricity. Besides you can travel direct to your destination without intermediate stops, minimal boarding time and a cruise speed comparable to that of an airplane: hyperloop will be one of the fastest means of public transport. And there is no prior planning needed, hyperloop departs every few minutes. You can travel directly to your final destination without any intermediate stops or delays.
During the keynote, Tom will highlight what their vision is on transport in the future
