“Our product is a low-cost braille display that is powered by web services”

What was for you the reason to register for the preliminaries for ICTalent 2017?

We wanted  to get more resources and exposure to work on our idea” startup”.

How can you best describe your product? What can it do? What does it do?

Our product is a low-cost braille display that is powered by web services.

What makes your product so unique?

The price of such a device with the web services that is included “like google search functionality “ 

Which teacher coached you or has inspired you?

Bert van Gestel, Ricardo Abdoel and Pascal Leben.

Why should you win the ICTalent Awards 2017?

I could say because our idea has a huge impact on the visually impaired individuals, especially in developing countries where visually impaired children don’t have access to education. Winning the award would be nice but our main aim is to realize our product and establish our startup and we hope by participating in the ICT talent award we would be able to achieve that goal regardless if we win the title or not.

What, if you win the first prize of 2000 euro per person? How are you going to use the money to develop your product or your talents?

It depends on how far we reach with our Start-up, whether we would need to invest more in the product itself or in our self “ more business skills & courses” that is necessary for the realization of our start up.

And… what do you want to tell your competition?

May we all achieve our goals
