Rethinking how people live, move and work in the future

We build startups from idea to scale. At scale.

Hi there!

Welcome to trive

We are a startup studio that builds great companies from idea to scale. At scale.

About us

Focus Areas

Our Industries

There are increasingly more humans on earth. They become older, move to cities and their jobs get automated through robots and algorithms. All these megatrends result in the fact that we need to radically rethink how we live and work in the future.

Focus Areas
Reinventing Housing & Places

Rethinking Urbanisation

Urbanisation & Sustainability

As more and more people are moving to larger cities, we need to find better and sustainable solutions to how we live together. Here, we put human needs and environmental limits at the centre.

Reinventing Mobility & Transportation

Upgraded Mobility & Transportation

Growing Demand & Individualisation

New forms of mobility will create more convenient and sustainable ways to move. Electric transport will be faster, cheaper, and better available for a wide audience.

New Work & Mindfulness

Meaningful Productivity & New Work

Remote Work & Mental Health

Several cutting-edge technologies are ripe to collectively disrupt the creational capabilities of humankind. We are working on them technology-friendly but human-focused.

from idea to scale

The Building Process

We are building startups following a proven approach.


The studio team immerses itself in problems and challenges, constantly observes the market. We also work together with the community to ideate for the problems we work on.


Relevant solutions for the respective focus area(s) of the studio are being ideated. Also here, we count on our community.


The team tests every idea in detail for its market and disruption potential. Most ideas are discarded.


The core team of the studio starts to build the business (tech, business & design) and starts to search for external co-founders who take over.


After a co-development phase, the startup becomes independent of the studio. The studio keeps a percentage of the shares.

Our next project will focus on bringing more convenience and power to urban citizens.The project is still in stealth mode but it circles around some challenges of urbanisation:

  • Local stores are under pressure to match the convenience and experience of top-notch online offerings.
  • The pandemic still poses a threat, especially where the population is dense. Meeting basic needs requires safer options.
