kiozk accenture innovation award and exchange

Accenture Innovation Exchange

Last week, the 2013 edition of Innovation Exchange took place in Amsterdam. Accenture, which organized the event, provided seven of their partner companies with a list of hundreds of Dutch innovative startups. This list included Kiozk. Three companies were interested in us and invited Kiozk to the event.

This gave us the opportunity to present Kiozk to three amazing companies. And, it’s the first time I attended such an event, which made it even more exciting. We met great people and got introduced to more than just three companies. I’m excited about the future!

Kiozk by the numbers

I wrote about my company once… just once. Today I’m gonna double this because, well… I wrote another post about Kiozk.com. This time it’s about the numbers.

kiozk activities in Groningen

60

We now have 60 organizers in Kiozk. Some of them use Kiozk to organize just a single activity, some of them dozens and a few actually over a hundred activities.

9

The number of activities in Kiozk this Sunday. Here’s a quick run through: At midnight the day starts with an event in a nightclub, A few hours later an exposition and local market can be visited, you can take a tour with a ranger and cheer for Jong FC Groningen, the pupils of a major Dutch soccer club. These are just five activities which means there are four more. It’s enough to fill the day for sure.

1000+

We recently hit the milestone of 1000 activities organized with Kiozk. Keep ’em coming!

53

This is really cool, it’s the number of activities created in the past two days.

1

The number of cities we’re in. Currently Groningen is the only city in which Kiozk is actively scouting for organizers and users. This means all numbers mentioned above apply to just this one city. Oh, I really want to double this number. Just think of the possibilities…

Square 2013, part four

As promised yesterday, here’s the compilation episode of Square Journaal 2013. It was broadcasted during last months Square after party (watch it here). I directed this service, but during the broadcast of this compilation episode I briefly slipped out of the control room and joined the teenagers in the auditorium. It’s great to see how they reacted to this final episode!

This year, Square Journaal (English: Square News) isn’t a news show. Instead, it’s more like a short movie mixed with news-items, aimed at teenagers.

Our story: Baroness Lulu von Pfirsch, the main character, wants to destroy Square, a large Christian teen event in the Netherlands. In three episodes we see her trying to achieve this goal. How it ends? Well, I guess you should watch all three episodes to find out.

Square 2013, part three

It took a while, but as promised, here’s the third and final episode of Square Journaal 2013. Enjoy! And to make it up with you (for the long wait), I’ll post the compilation episode, which includes some great new scenes, tomorrow. No, You don’t need to thank me ;-)

Chess Academy Baku

Wolf Prix is well known for its incomprehensible sketches. And I was fortunate enough to be around when he made one for the Baku Chess Academy. Before we continue, first some background info. The same client of the Central Bank project happened to be involved with chess as well. He wanted the best chess academy and commissioned Wolf Prix, founder of Vienna architecture firm Coop Himmelb(l)au, for the project.

I briefly worked on this project and saw Wolf Prix when he sketched out his vision. This is what it looked like:

It took the team several weeks, ultimately they came up with this:

I guess the Central Bank of Azerbaijan was designed the same way? Maybe clichés about architects are true after all.
