innovation accelerators who want to make the world a better place every day

The Next Lab is all about making positive impact. When Jeroen Kraak, founder of The Next Lab, experienced firsthand as a participant in 2016 how much impact a Design Sprint can make, he knew, "this is how all organizations should work."

The idea for The Next Lab was born and the mission was set to help as many organizations as possible with the coolest and most impactful innovation processes. More importantly, The Next Lab set the goal of making positive impact in the places where it is needed most. From Kerkrade to Cape Town.

We want to make a better world together. From Kerkrade to Cape Town. Everything we do is focused on that. The UN's 17 SDGs are our compass in this regard.
