DRIVEN Incubation Program Call for Projects

DRIVEN by Volumes has now announced an open call for projects for their November 2020 intake.

Do you feel like advanced technologies and digital strategies could create a big impact in solving major challenges to transition our cities into a circular economy?  If you want to convert this feeling into a company, this open call for projects is for you.

What is DRIVEN?

DRIVEN is an incubation program aiming to embed advanced computational design and fabrication strategies in early-stage entrepreneurship for a circular economy. DRIVEN offers both an online and onsite platform to support emerging companies to accomplish their goals with the input of brilliant minds in the computational field such as Bollinger+Grohmann, Gilles Retsin, AUAR, Mateusz Zwierzycki and many more.

Who are we looking for?

Designers, architects, engineers, entrepreneurs, makers, creative technologists, or something in-between all these fields and who plans to build a company to tackle circular economy with computational design.

We aim to incubate projects that are technology embeddable and committed to a circular economy that could be real demonstrators of the effectiveness of computational design and fabrication strategies from the design phase to industrial production processes.


Please check out our incubation program here to see if we are a match!  We will be announcing our Winter/Spring workshop series by September which will cover topics such as computational fabrication, structural design, machine learning, amongst others.
