City Governance Amsterdam
Open Innovation Lobbyist
City of Amsterdam

My passion is bottom up city planning/policy making through crowdsourcing and  crowdfunding. I am lobbying for a new age governance in cities where the cheapest and most effective solutions are shared with commons, via open source software’s and because of the use open data. I am fortunate to have an excellent team on 3 EU open innovation projects (running till 2015) in Amsterdam where we recruit app developer fellows for cities, launching city challenges and re-usable platforms. We are just about to launch our open innovation community via www.openinnovationamsterdam.com where at least 50 local decision makers (‘evangelists’) joined and acknowledged the ‘’collaborative surplus’’ we have created with open innovation in the last 2 years in Amsterdam. Each day I am thrilled to see the talents, engagement around this topic. We are reshaping city governance with new media and communities.
