Programme: Meet Wilfred 30 September 2021
The interactive evening programme includes brief updates from the universities followed by a short talk by UT alumnus Wilfred Booij, CTO at Forkbeard, a Norwegian startup company, aiming to become the indoor GPS by delivering the blue dot for smart devices, indoors.
Per tradition, our gathering concludes with a virtual borrel (BYOB) where you and fellow alumni living in Denmarkt, Sweden, Norway and Finland will be mixed with each other to maximize interactions and stimulate conversations. Make sure to also bring some snacks and drinks for the borrel!
Wilfred Booij – ForkbeardThe world has been thoroughly mapped down to street view level, and everyone with a smartphone is an expert navigator. At least outside. Because inside buildings, we still navigate like our viking ancestors, through signs and (God forbid), asking for directions. Forkbeard aims to conquer the final frontier of navigation: The great indoors! To become the indoor GPS by delivering the blue dot for smart devices, indoors.
