Together with other the Dutch universities and on behalf of the Netherlands Consulate General in San Francisco and Holland in the Valley, we organise the NL alumni ‘Toast on the Westcoast’ event on Thursday 28 January from 8.00 – 9.30 PM (PST).
We look forward to proposing a toast to 2021 with you! But before that we have an interesting keynote speech by TU Delft alumnus Onno Faber. Onno lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area and is an entrepreneur and public speaker with the mission to inspire people to see problems as opportunities, to see your work and talents as ways to be of service to other people and to live life to its fullest potential.
Keynote speaker Onno Faber"I grew up in the Netherlands and live in San Francisco, and have a degree in architecture. A few years ago I’ve been diagnosed with a rare genetic disease that causes tumors to grow in my central nervous system, which puts me at risk for losing my hearing, eyesight and mobility. After that I started RDMD, helping rare disease communities unlock important research data. I'm currently working on a new project to advance the mission to accelerate the process of finding treatments for rare diseases."
Please note that we have a maximum capacity of participants for this activity, if necessary a waiting list will be created.
