About the speaker

Jan is a designer, entrepreneur and activist working on circular economy and social innovation. As a strategic business designer, he believes that a structural shift towards sustainability can only be reached if we also look into the underlying logic of our systems. He is always looking for the overlap between activism and entrepreneurship, technology and community. As an industrial designer, Jan quickly shifted his focus from designing content (products, services, processes) towards designing context (business models, innovation methodologies, policy). He is also the co-founder of switchrs, a strategic innovation agency that focuses on business model development in circular economy and social impact.
