One of the ambitions of Waag Society is to bring relevant technologies and concepts that have been developed to the market. This valorisation from prototype to product takes place in associated ventures (Ltd).
Some examples of products and concepts that were successfully introduced to the market are Pilotus (communication software), the Storytable (multimedia tables for elderly care centres), Monstermedia (learning environment), 7scenes (software platform for location based games and tours), Monstermedia (serious media game for education) and Culture Grid internet services. All these products originate from projects of Waag Society. Recently, Fairphone was added to the projects that are being transformed into a product. Fairphone is a social enterprise that aims to bring the first fair produced mobile phone on the market.
Waag Products also facilitates starting entrepreneurs in the creative industry, with the accent on technology. These facilitations consist of a fully equipped work space and support in building their buisiness model. We are offering startups a workspace in Pakhuis de Zwijger, equiped with a broadband fibre optics network.
The incubator activities of Waag Products started in 2006 under the name Media Guild. Since 2013, all activities were brought under the hood of Waag Products.
