Charlie Knispel - A LAB HQ (Lab.005)
Hi, my name is Charlie and I am 18 years old. I love watching anime and movies (my favorite is American Psycho) and listening to music. People often ask me what kind of music I listen to, and I never know how to answer this question because I listen to nearly everything ranging from Nirvana to Gorillaz to Queen to Lana Del Ray to Arctic Monkeys and even ABBA. I currently work at SpareribExpress in Purmerend as kitchen staff and I really like my job!
I'm a (new) intern at A Lab and am currently studying Event Producer at ROC van Amsterdam. I'm a very sociable person and I love meeting new people! What I find most interesting about the event business is the marketing behind the events. I also think the amount of work and thought that goes into every small detail is very admirable. I’m still very new to everything but I’ve already met tons of amazing people!
I can’t wait to learn all sorts of skills here and grow my connections even more.
Hope u have a good time at A Lab as well!

Antigone Nastos (Workhotel)
Hi there! I'm Antigone (like the tragedy) and I just moved to Amsterdam in May. Originally from Greece, I spent a decade in California throwing parties for a living and am now considered a music industry veteran. I'm currently working on a book/field guide to surviving the events industry based on my experiences which I hope to get published next year.
I had my own counseling practice for the past few years and now I'm a freelance project manager doing way too many things (working on developing a video game, setting up my own coaching business, attending a master's programme at Reinwardt Academie among others) and I'm stoked to be a part of A Lab! I'm always interested in collaborating on projects so feel free to reach out! Things I care about in no particular order are: social and restorative justice, holistic wellness and healing modalities, video games, connecting to heritage, technology advancements, arts (yes, all), and sustainability.
I normally hang out in the quiet workhotel because I get distracted easily but would love to meet folks! Say hi if you're around.
Guus Rodermans - PandaM (Workhotel)
Happy to be sharing a workspace with you! My main expertise is in economics, finance, manufacturing and trade. After four years living and working in Shenzhen (China), I gained a great understanding of Chinese manufacturing and business, and graduated from a Master in Economics at Peking University. I speak the language very well, so if you have issues with the Chinese.. just pull my arm;).
Since COVID-19 hit mainland China, I started assisting European companies in their sourcing and manufacturing practices. My background in mechanical engineering helped me work with technical products: Source solar panels and batteries for Africa for example.
Currently, I help several businesses scale by offering financial modeling, business development, fundraising and marketing support. Since very recently I can afford the luxury to only work on innovative purpose-driven projects of my choosing. I'm more than ever motivated to make this world a better place through sustainable entrepreneurship. Contact me to discuss business opportunities, get consultation, or just to have a casual or random chat! Check our my website here.
