Passioned and geeky about:
Julian Jagtenberg is one of the founders of Somnox – world’s first sleep robot.
As an industrial design engineer that studied at the university of technology Delft and his passion for (soft) robotics his mission is to develop soft robotics to contribute to health and well being. With multiple design and engineering awards (james dyson award, philips innovation award, robotdalen innovation award and sprout 25 under 25) and raising 200% on Kickstarter he is determined to get the very best of robotics to help live a happier and healthier live. If it’s up to Julian, our household will look a little different with the help of robotics.
Data driven vs. data informed? I prefer the latter. Data is the new oil and systems and algorithms are more powerful than ever bringing great opportunities as well as threats. Let’s put it to use where it adds the most value.
Growth done differently. As head of growth within Somnox I am aware of the latest trends on how scale/grow companies that have reached product market fit. By making use of systems/OMTM’s and frameworks growth hacking could be the recipe for success.
Since I was little kid I am interested by business models. Starting out by washing cars in the neighbourhood and now running my own tech-startup within YES!Delft (high-tech incubotar). I am sure that entrepreneurship and social impact can go hand in hand.
Innovation & Prototyping
Incremental innovations don’t interest me. I prefer to analyze real problem-solving ideas that can have huge impact. No faster,better, stronger pizza delivery app here.
Branding & Design
As an Industrial Design Engineer I am passioned about great design and branding. Strategic branding and positioning yourselves in the midst of the noise we live in is a challenge that I think is so much fun.
Social impact at it’s core.
I think it’s very important to use today’s technology for social impact. I want to capture this impact in metrics. So every company that comes up with innovations can measure their impact in real-time.
Data-informed rather than data-driven
Define the one metric that matters most (for your customer as well as a company.)
Get in touch. Let's talk tech.
I'd love to hear from you.
