About the Sprints & Sneakers festival
After two consecutive editions, this year’s theme 'A New Definition of Growth' pushes the boundaries of growth and impact even further. In 2023, attendees of the festival enjoyed presentations by top industry leaders such as the founder of Dopper and the CMO of Inner Circle, with a spectacular performance by De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig as the main act.

With no less than 17 top industry speakers this year, including luminaries such as Marco Knitel (ex-GM Uber, co-founder Check) and Matthijs Schouten (professor of philosophy and ecology and TEDx speaker), Sprints & Sneakers promises once again a groundbreaking combination of conference and festival.
