    We want to offer our favourite entrepreneurs and pioneers a platform to share the visions and insights that will shape our future, which is why, each week, we’ll present you with an exclusive episode of Imagineers.

    Produced in partnership with the City of Amsterdam, each episode captures one person’s thought-provoking talk against the backdrop of TNW’s beloved home city, where rich history and culture go hand-in-hand with innovation and progression – just the right place for TNW Conference.

    In this ninth episode, our CEO and co-founder Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten tells us why he sees The Next Web as a future-proof company (*sigh of relief*), and what he thinks lies ahead for our increasingly technology-shaped society. What makes the Apple Watch such a breakthrough, and why should we take business advice from our children? Find out the answer to these and many more compelling questions in this inspiring video.

    ➤  See Boris and over 100 other world-class speakers at TNW Europe in May. Get your tickets.
