We host different types of events at our proto hub, from panels to meet ups and workshops. We designed three new formats to push forward themes that we are passionate about. “Theory & Practice” brings together an insightful panel and a hands-on workshop to apply learnings. “Themepark” enables a deep dive into a theme that we consider important to discuss. “Huperetivo” is a casual pitch event for three of our members to get feedback from guests, talk and drink. Our “Skill-Building Breakfast” are a beautiful opportunity for our member to get insights into some one else’s expertise.

We offer events that are public and some that are specially designed for our community only. Register – we’re looking forward to seeing you at one!
