About

A Lab is Amsterdam's ultimate living lab, combining the strength of Amsterdam's creative scene, technological prowess and free thinking spirit into a 5000m2 hothouse for bleeding edge experimentation.

We host creatives and technologists and catalyze labs that are exploring the way we will live in the networked society that is upon us. We spin out ideas, companies and have as much appreciation for success as for failure.

Our communities are our strength, our location our inspiration, our programming our success. You can rent a desk, an office or a inspiration space here. In our physical and virtual labs we bring together ecosystems that change the world. To name a few: Art & Culture, Journalism, Music, Social Robotics & Visual. Find more about our Labs.

Curious

We are creators, leaders and self-starters. We try new things; we challenge the status quo; we fail with a vengeance;

Connect

We believe together we can do more; with creatives and technologists, startups and corporates, students and universities, institutions and freelancers together create something greater than ourselves.

Be Real

We practice what we preach. Not perfect and not pretending to be. We should all feel comfortable. We are always honest. We make it happen:

“Do, or do not... there is no try.” (Yoda)

Share

Pay it forward! Ideas, connections, solutions are there to be shared.

Your success = their success = your success.
