Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

On a company visit

In FutureLab , young people go on a company visit to find answers to their Future Questions. The company visit is a great opportunity for companies to profile themselves to young people and schools in a playful and educational way. In the process, they themselves also get a picture of what is going on among young people. This is important, because they are our future employees and entrepreneurs!

Nexxdott partners with a number of large, innovative companies such as Deloitte, TNO and the Federation of Technology Industries (FHI).

Students consider the company visit the highlight of FutureLab. 

Is your company participating too?

Guest presentations and excursions

Companies that are working on high-profile developments or sustainable innovations and would like to introduce them to young people, can also be guest speakers at FutureLab. We can also organize an excursion for pupils or students to your company. Not only interesting for the young people, but also for you. Perhaps they will become so enthusiastic that they will eventually want to work on developments in your company.

Are you interested in this?

Experiences of companies

Through the companies participating in FutureLab, young people really get an inside look. Thanks to the interviews and tours, they get a very good picture of the company; about developments and innovations, about functions and responsibilities, and about issues that companies have not yet found solutions for.

Paul Vierveijzer, Senior Business Developer at TNO:

"We think it is very important that children are enthused to think about the future, questions of knowledge, all kinds of new initiatives that are out there and how they themselves can contribute to them."

Eric Razenberg, Director of ThiemeMeulenhoff:
"I would like to give a guest presentation in FutureLab. My wish is that schools will have a subject Future next to History.

Think tanks

Think tanks with young people on a (future) issue of your company

It is even more fascinating for young people when they are allowed to think with a company about an issue for which no solution has yet been found. For the company it can be very interesting to let young people, with their fresh and open mind, think along about such an issue. This can lead to whole new angles and ideas for solving your issue.

Since 2010, I have offered think tanks in which we work on a business issue using creative thinking techniques and a mix of company employees and young people from a school.

Please contact me for more information.

Experiences with think tanks

Think tank questions deal with issues that companies are struggling with and for which no solution has yet been found, such as making a particular product attractive to the target group of young people. By doing think tanks with employees and young people together, surprising and new angles are found. Especially if the think tank also uses creative thinking techniques.

"I am pleasantly surprised with the results of the think tank. I am impressed by the thought process, the work ethic of the participants and the results. We are going to use the ideas we collected in our communication to the market."

Gertjan Meeuws - Director PlantLab

"Different light, different position and different background offer new perspectives and dimensions".

Pauline and her think tank have helped us on our way. She proved to be very capable of guiding a creative process of a group of professionals and to deliver useful results within a short time. Thank you for that!
