Our second half of the plenary programme, the Techonomy Heroes can add one more hero to their team. Lex Hoefsloot! Hoefsloot wil join other Techonomy Heroes who were able to innovate through the means of their product, business model and even company culture. Already confirmed as a Techonomy Hero is Joris Beckers, Founder of Picnic. Camilla van den Boom, Strategy Director at Sturrm, will do the honours for the opening keynote for Techonomy and will introduce our Heroes.
Lex Hoefsloot, 26 years old and the CEO of Lightyear was able to create a world-champion solar powered family car together with his team of bright students at his university.
Hoefsloot has a clear vision for technology, using it for the right purpose. Not for adds of wasteful products, but to directly challenge the world’s biggest problems.
Recently he was invited to De Wereld Draait Door, a popular Dutch TV, show to tell about Lightyear.
