Wopke Dost

Director Innovation Programs @TNW

Hi! I'm Wopke - Head of Innovation Program Delivery at TNW. With TNW we define the innovation challenges of corporates and connect them to the newest technology or fastest growing startups. I'm involved in many programs within TNW, but none of them has sustainability so close to its heart as the Impact Nation program.

I have worked a couple of years as a management consultant and encountered big dreams and plans, but often the daily hassle taking over before we can make any steps towards that big future. That's why I work for Impact Nation and credits to Nike for phrasing it that well; here we Just Do It.

Connecting corporates to startups is what I believe in. It's a way of innovation that ain't always easy, but it combines all the angles of technology, ambition, a wide network, big production capabilities and agile ways of working that together are such a powerful way of innovating. And the cool part is, at Impact Nation we are practicing what we preach and Impact Nation itself is the outcome of such a collaboration. A big corporate, two ecosystem players and now even a knowledge institution working together to combine all these interesting angles and facilitate even more of these collaborations!
