BLIKSEM EN DONDERDAG
A Thursday enlightening event

Bliksem en Donderdag, ‘a Thursday enlightening event’, is all about inspiration, interaction, connection and acceleration. This platform gives makers, thinkers, doers and dreamers a chance to share, test and accelerate their ideas. VPRO Medialab took the initiative and invited TU/e, Baltan Laboratories and High Tech Campus to work together on this new platform. The 9th edition will take place on Thursday March 1st at De Kazerne.

Several pitchers present to the audience the dilemma that he or she has encountered during the development of their product or idea. Two experts give feedback on each pitch. Then it is the audience’s turn: with advice, tips and experiences, those present help the pitchers further in their design or creation process.
