Hi, I'm Daniel van Waas

Founder and lead designer of Madeway Solutions

With 15 years of expertise in technical design software and 9 years of experience in irrigation design for Agriculture, Horticulture, and Viticulture industries I help growers optimise water use while also educating and empowering new irrigation designers to make a wider impact towards sustainability goals.

About me

Innovating, engineering & problem solving is my passion! Originally from the Netherlands but now living in New Zealand. I'm a driven young entrepreneur that is motivated to make a positive impact on the environment.

My greatest strength is helping irrigation installers & growers find the solutions for their operations. Due to climate change, increasing fertilizer and energy costs for growers, it's more important than ever to have a well engineered irrigation system that uses fewer resources.

Coming from an area in The Netherlands that is constantly changing and improving how we grow more with fewer resources, I have been inspired from a young age to explore innovative solutions to modern horticultural/viticultural/agricultural irrigations problems.

The Netherlands is a small country but is the second largest agricultural exporter in the world, second only to the United States. They invest a huge amount of time and energy into technology innovation and therefore are home to some of the most influential discoveries within agricultural farming.

These technologies are available and can make a huge impact in the New Zealand growing industries. Paired with my knowledge, experience, and resources, I am looking forward to implementing these technologies into the New Zealand market.

I'm always keen to connect with more people, so feel free to get in touch!
