“Maak samen met ons van digitaal Antwerpen een pionier, want de beste ideeën ontstaan als we de handen in elkaar slaan.”
In the spring of 2015, the City of Antwerp started an ambitious but fascinating program: building a platform in order to facilitate and speed up the go 2 market for the city services, citizens, companies and all people & instances in need of digital touchpoint and communications. Antwerp City Platform as a Service (ACPaaS) was born.
Digipolis gathered a community of innovative start-ups around them and started to build a solid platform with technical and business ‘engines’.
We must admit that in the beginning we were a bit sceptic about the ecosystem they wanted to build. After all, Digipolis is a governmental organization that has specific rules and a certain robustness. We didn’t expect them to adopt the agility and velocity of a start-up like Narato. Luckily, we were proven wrong.
Today we can say we are one of the bigger partners in this community and happy to be part of it.
