Our programs help creative leaders, entrepreneurs and corporates innovate, create impact and scale their ventures.
THNK's mission is twofold: we accelerate the development of creative leaders from across corporate, private, public, and social sectors and from all over the world. Together, we create innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing and inspiring challenges.
Dubbed by Stanford University as “the future of higher education”, we stand for creativity, business model innovation, and entrepreneurship for social impact. While a ‘B-School’ professionalizes management and a ‘D-School’ does the same for product design, THNK is a ‘C-School’ that applies creativity for positive change at scale. THNK was founded as an initiative by business and creative sectors in joint cooperation with the Dutch Prime Minister and the Dutch Innovation Platform. In 2010, THNK was officially established in the mayor’s residence, receiving more than €6 million of initial capital from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, the City of Amsterdam and the Province of North Holland. THNK also received significant support from its launching partners, which include McKinsey & Company, Droog Design, Vodafone, Stanford d.school, and Philips Design.
