Thomas Nieuwendijk was formerly a student at the Delft University of Technology. As an intern at Bopinc, Thomas finalised his thesis with Innovectives about Agent Banking Opportunities for Youth (ABOY). ABOY entails digital financial service (DFS) skills, which were trained to young women via an online training programme accessible via Whatsapp. Besides, he designed a development guide on online training for low-income entrepreneurs to develop high quality online training fast and with ease.
After graduating his master’s degree in Design for Interaction and finishing several projects in low-income contexts, he applies various design methodologies in every project he can, with the ambition to create a positive, relevant impact on the end user.
