Within Knowit, we have collaboration hubs for innovation, so-called Innovation Zones. There, clients, partners, academies, and colleagues can explore new technology and methods with the ambition of finding new solutions that create value and enable a sustainable future. Start-ups that try to solve important societal questions or realize a more sustainable future, so-called Impact start-ups, get particular support from Innovation Zone, where Knowit’s consultants act as mentors, develop or digitalize the start-ups’ deal pro bono or at a discount rate.
One example of such a project is together with Water in Sight, which digitalizes the gathering of water and weather data with simple mobile and technical solutions. This is a start-up operating in several African countries, which needed support in the form of AWS and digital security expertise.
“When Knowit supported our early startup journey at Water in Sight, we quickly got access to their unique strategy, UX, and AWS expertise. The commitment and knowledge of the Knowit team was more than we could have imagined when we suddenly faced a challenge for our innovation for gathering water and climate data from low-income countries. Their solutions improved our client services. Further, Knowit has the UX potential of our homepage and created a roadmap that is now guiding our new homepage and communication with the outside world,” says Louise Croneborg-Jones, CEO and founder of Water in Sight.
