How do we use nature and tech to our advantage when living in this unnatural world?

Biohacking is rapidly moving from being a sub-culture to becoming an emerging trend amongst people who seek optimal health, performance, and wellbeing. Across the world, people are taking advantage of exponential technologies as well as old-school technologies to gain new insights about their bodies to become the best possible version of themselves. 

The question is, however, where do you start, and why should you start in the first place?

We are witnessing a fast-growing community of biohackers with a wide range of backgrounds, competencies, and motivations – all enthusiastic about the bridge between tech and their own health. At this year’s Techfestival we have gathered some of the most inspiring and grounded biohackers who will share their knowledge with us.

Join them for an immersive session which will include a good mix of inspirational (data-driven) health-stories and an awesome range of booths with all the latest biohacking tech and gear will be presented. Whether you want to hack your muscle density, understand your real-time stress levels, increase your focus with neurostimulation, or take a deep dive on your own biochemistry, this session will be right up your alley!

Come and try some of these hacks brought to you by thriving startups and join a discussion about how to use biohacking to improve our lives, without getting overwhelmed.
