How to make a stellar coffee?Well, that's what I was asking myself as well. About a month ago I was getting my daily shot of caffeine and I bumped into Sebastiaan Hooft. Sebastiaan founded Amsterdam Coffee Roasters about 2 years ago and his hobby got out of hand. I invited him to come to TNW HQ and tell us about coffee, his passion and afterwards he'll teach us how to make the ultimate espresso on our brand new old Faema e61! If you're really into coffee, ping us and we can save you a seat.

Where All Kinds Of Original Programs AppearIt was the fall of 2006, a rainy Amsterdam day, Boris and I were working from our office, or at least something that should look like one, when two 21-year-old dudes walked in to pitch an idea to us. It was like Last.fm for applications the guys enthusiastically told us. We had no idea if this Last.fm for apps would work and if it could be a viable business and this was before the smartphone era and the big boom of apps, but the two young blokes made a super intelligent and a bit nerdy impre...
Say hello to TNW's new HQWe felt it was time for a change, time for a new TNW HQ. We found ourselves a new home right in the city center of Amsterdam at the Fredriksplein 42. The building is called 42, which is not only the address' number, but also the answer to life, the universe and everything as you probably know. We're very excited about our new home and our new neighbours (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). It's a lot bigger than our previous office (480m2 vs 180m2 previously), it has meeting rooms, a lunch area...
What happens in Vierhouten...?Warning! This message contains a fair amount of office jargon. Any self-respecting tech company nowadays goes on a company retreat, in order to recharge, rework, check in and circle the wagons. I mean, re-group, touch base with the team, really dive deeper and think outside the box to come up with some game-changing, paradigm shifting new value add for the business that creates a win-win-win. That's a no-brainer, right? So, we moved the Amsterdam office for 24 hours to the middle of nowher...
Thanks! It was a blast #TNWeuropeWe're still shaky, have trouble sleeping or being awake. You could say that the team is in limbo after the TNW Europe Conference. But hey, it was fantastic! The stage, the people (each of the 2500 participants), the speakers, the looks, the Belgium fries, the parties, the business, the weather, it all couldn't be better. Next year it will be our 10th anniversary and oooff, that's going to be insane. Can't wait to see you there. Make sure to reserve your voucher for a 1 + 1 ticket. Below a ...
We've got shirts! Gorgeous, provoking, fun.Our new t-shirt collection came in and boy oh boy, look at the fancy designs we've got in store today.
