The story of the company started in a basement – sounds familiar no? – well, actually the story needs a step backward.
Chinese is not of the easiest languages to speak, so how could he make himself understand when he was over there? He recorded some Chinese basic sentences, collected them together and developed an ” app “ for one of the Nokia N 70 ( how many of you remember the picture 0n the left?).
The Idea was so successful that soon he got the attention of the local media. Sander decided to come back to the Netherlands and that company in the basement, has now International clients and a portfolio of innovations.
Sander is currently focused on Business Development for new and emerging areas. He is doing consultancy in mobile marketing, advertising and media and helps companies & brands develop a mobile strategy. He resides in Amsterdam but frequently speaks about Mobile Marketing and Connected Media around the globe.
The innovations we could expect in the future
Sander gave his vision on where Mobile Marketing is heading in the coming years.
The future of Mobile will be super interesting, I see the progress also as an advertiser, and there are many potentials that are still unexplored. Mobile devices will also help progress, like this application designed for blind people, which allows them to play soccer.
Mobile devices will for sure change our lives, there is going to be also an application that tells when your fridge is empty and what you need to buy when you are at the supermarket.
On another perspective, don’t text and walk at the same time, why?
Success Sander, see you at the next event.
