The Next Economy Program is a Studio Wolfpack project, supported by the City of Rotterdam  and embedded in the creative scene. We scout its latest developments, support new business cases and we are building a first-hand knowledge base on the next economy.

Over the last years we helped our partners put themes like gig economy, internet of things and blockchain on the agenda in an early stage; several successful business cases were being launched; we co-founded a fieldlab for blockchain technology; our household perspective on the next economy now leads to the establishment of a Grassroots Business Lab; new skill sets have been defined, which lead to new curricula and masterclasses; crossover programs with corporates, science and public sector are now being been realized; plus we like to think we generally raised the bar: next really means taking a leap now.
