Hacking for the greater good at SXSW 2017

We’re so excited about South by Southwest (SXSW) that we put together our very own impact startup delegation to represent the city of The Hague. We will be here all week and look forward to taking you along on our journey.

SXSW is both a conference and festival that celebrates the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries. In their own words: “South by Southwest helps creative people achieve their goals. It is our mission to facilitate face-to-face connections, new opportunities, and unexpected discovery through an event that brings together multi-faceted people from all walks of life, from around the globe.”

This year’s edition takes place in Austin, Texas from 10-16 March. To enjoy the ride, keep an eye on our social media channels and hashtags #sxsw and #impactcity.

The following Impact Startups from The Hague are part of the Dutch delegation:

Discovered is an online marketplace for handmade products made by artisans from all over the world.

Traktor is an online mobile farming assistant that targets 500 million farmers in emerging markets. Currently being piloted in the Republic of Georgia, Traktor aims to be first-to-market with a online & mobile one-stop-shop for agricultural goods and services, whilst providing farmers with the tools to improve their output and grow more sustainably. 

Hack the Planet is all about looking at global challenges from a different angle. Powered by the engineers of Q42, it hopes to change the game by using cutting-edge technology and hands-on engineering.
