Innovation Origins:
Your Sneak Preview of the Future

We are Innovation Origins, an independent journalistic platform that focuses on innovation, the business of innovation and the people behind it. We tell the relevant stories from this sector, highlighting the people, products and companies that determine tomorrow’s society.
We are Your Sneak Preview of the Future!

What we stand for


We write what and about what we want. Even if we have an appointment with a company, we decide what will be published online. Read more about our independence.


We don’t just focus on what goes wrong but show solutions to today’s problems.

Looking forward

We do not remain stuck in the past. We introduce you to start-ups and companies that are working on this future. Not what happened yesterday, but what is relevant tomorrow!


We are always open to suggestions, tips, and collaborations. We would like to learn from our readers, who may have different expertise.

Local & international

We work with local journalists who create stories about their communities in their own language. With the English platform, we place these stories in an international context.

Help us

We always base our reporting on the facts, also in the editorials and columns. We realize that others sometimes know more than we do and therefore call on our visitors to correct us where necessary.

What we do


As journalists, we try to bring you the best stories about new technology, how that technology is made, who made it and most of all: What it means for our future society.


With four events a year, we don’t want to only write about the people behind innovation, we also want to meet them. Meet us, for example, at the Startups to Watch event, where we give the 10 most promising start-ups in the region an award and a podium so that they can share their story.


We write a lot about innovation and society, and it is a shame that interesting stories are considered old the moment they have been published online. That is why we put the most interesting stories on a subject together and make a book out of it. For example Eindhoven Towards a Smart Society – How a city slowly develops into a Smart Society.
