Schluss

Featured image

With Schluss you will have your own digital, multi encrypted digital safe. Which only YOU can access. Inside that safe you can store anything: from simple addresses to real complex medical and financial data. And the information that you decide to give insight to, can never be copied, transferred or sold. And it's always up-to-date.

We're building Schluss together: with technicians, companies, governments and individuals. Our software will be Open Source. We're building a community. A world wide cooperative where each Schluss-user is co-owner. To ensure that Schluss will always stay that independent, trusted third party.

Schluss software will be Open Source. The entity will be a cooperative.

Walk the Knowledge mile

We offer a variety of custom made programs, including presentations and personal tours.

The Knowledge Mile is a living lab in Amsterdam that runs from the Amstelplein to the city hall of the municipality of Amsterdam. The Wibautstraat and Weesperstraat are the two main streets at the centre of this area. Both are well known for the urban challenges they face, such as high traffic volumes, flooding and air pollution. The area is also known as a world-class knowledge cluster with the campusses of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the University of Amsterdam and Amsterdam University of Arts.

The Knowledge Mile is a place to establish crucial connections and to achieve productive partnerships, fruitful networks and creative interaction. With a community of 30.000 residents, 60.000 students and almost 200 organisations, hotels, museums, social and municipal institutions together we aim to improve the quality of life in the area, by improving and sharing knowledge and facilitating new connections at our Meetup’s. This is a space to interact and share ideas.

The Knowledge Mile is also a business investment area where all organisations join forces to improve the work/life climate in the field of joint investments in communication/marketing, security, viability and physical movement.
