Knowledge sharing

We consider it very important that apps become more accessible. That’s why we strongly support knowledge sharing. We are involved in various initiatives to make as much impact as possible. We started in the Netherlands, but are increasingly active in Europe and the rest of the world.

In 2020 we founded the Appt Foundation. The mission of the Appt Foundation is to make apps accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. We are involved in various projects that make apps more accessible.
