CityHub facilitates urban travellers in their need to explore cities, meet like-minded people and connect with locals.
The CityHub experience is more than sleeping in a futuristic hub. It’s about enjoying local life, curated by City Hosts backed up by technology.
We fully focus on digital service. Your door opens with a RFID tag, so does the beer tap, you check in at the check-in kiosk or your app, you plan your visiting scheme in your app and you request live tips, on-location from the City Host, hey! We even managed to get you WiFi to Go, a free roaming service for city use. O, and yes, your hub is sound-proof.
From Amsterdam to the world. Challenges arise by designing for different cultures and languages, but more exciting are the possibilities of building a network based brand.

Did you know approximately one-third of our food production is wasted? Can you imagine the impact to our planet? Food waste isn’t something to ignore any longer, it’s something to work with. And that’s exactly what ThijsTea is doing.
ThijsTea innovates within a crowded market by putting fruit waste in the mix. By doing so these guys make an excellent iced tea and help the world being a better place. A perfect strategy for its brand and lots of opportunities for the future. Think of pillows from the cherry-stones or limoncello from the lemon peel… ThijsTea can be so much more than just an iced tea!
ThijsTea is fresh. Rodney, Thijs & Thomas started in the summer of 2016. Together with Festina their brand positioning was defined and translated into a strong brand identity. Then their crowdfunding campaign was ready to go and became a success, reaching 200% long before their deadline!
There is a small team of T-Mobile’s finest who are dedicated to the next big thing in the connectivity sector: the Internet of Things. Nobody knows exactly where and how it will develop in the near future, but it will be big for sure!
Already over 10 spots in the Netherlands are wired with their low-band frequency connection. By doing so, T-Mobile is openly searching for new value propositions besides its connectivity, and therefore in search of user cases and creative breakthroughs.
Bring together a community of creative thinkers, add some smart developers and innovation may follow… If the hackers community can’t do it, no one can. We are developing several tools in order to enable the community to get IoT-involved.

Amatore is a community for the amateur sector in the Netherlands. Because sharing personal experiences makes life more fun. It unlocks knowledge and brings people together by learning from each other’s skill.
It’s proven that 1 to 2 Dutchies is involved or interested in an amateur art form. Besides that, there is research showing us that exercising creative hobbies works towards a more open, intelligent and happy society. Together with Amatore, we set out to open up the market for the amateur sector in order to facilitate exactly this.
Amatore is a commercial platform for a non-commercial sector. Thereby we prove the existence of a non-existing market. And with various features plotted on the roadmap, we continue working towards making Amatore a commercial success in 2017.

Futurelab brings together its own organisation with start-ups in a non-capitalist way. T-Mobile understands that being a big company has its advantages and its disadvantages. Tapping into entrepreneurs from outside the organisation, enabling the inside intrapreneurs and using internal resources, makes T-Mobile conceptually future prove.
T-Mobile has 1,500 employees with ideas, experience, and willpower. Let’s enable that power! Also, why not take some risks with those employees that actually are eager to prove their ideas are business prove. Embedding Futurlab appears to be the challenge; embodying HR as a sponsor and a clear funnel towards the CRM database of the department of B2B. By doing so, Futurelab opens up the corporate machine from the inside out.
A German-owned company on the loose! What will the stockholders think?! But as a CEO running a company in a world that moves faster than you can strategise on, a concept like Futurelab might just be the thing you need. The one thing you shouldn’t underestimate; a crazy fellow like Innovation Manager Ewout Karel to make it happen.

WiFi To Go offers the opportunity to take your stay abroad to a whole other level. It allows you to be connected to the internet at all times and at an affordable price. Share your experiences with family and friends; keep connected to your host or other travellers. WiFi To Go is your box to free information during your holiday.
Roaming can quickly lead to high costs. And why? It is 2017 after all. We joined forces with T-Mobile to create an easy-to-use mifi service that allows you to save money while staying connected. It’s easy to carry, and you can use it with several smartphones, computers and / or tablets at once through the 4G T-Mobile network.
WiFi To Go can be found in several locations around Amsterdam, such as the CityHub, Urban Lodge and Hotel Not Hotel. Some of them ask for a minor fee per day, others include them in their service, but they all have one goal: facilitating travelling experience to the max. By the way, we are looking for an account manager for this project. Are you the one? Click here for more info.
