    Ester van der Geest

    Ester works as chief editor at Waag.

    Ester continuously seeks new ways to maximize the impact of all the exciting research, projects, and tools with which Waag is involved. This may mean a massive public event on one occasion, while on another a publication, a blog post, or even an old fashioned phone call will prove more efficient. How do we make technology into something that actually works for us? Waag is on a mission. So is Ester. 

    Ester has broad experience both as a journalist (het Financieele Dagblad / the Dutch Financial Daily) and as an entrepreneurial professional. Before she joined Waag, she was on the board of a pioneering collective that realized restaurants (Hotel de Goudfazant, Radio Royaal and Café Modern) and a boutique hotel (Sweet Dreamz). She is an experienced stakeholder manager and event organizer. Ester studied Social neuropsychology (cum laude) and Journalism & Media in Amsterdam.
