From one bank to another

Corporate News -

Recently NIBC organised the ‘NIBC Challenge’ together with the Voedselbank Haaglanden. Over 25 enthusiastic Young NIBC colleagues and volunteers from the Voedselbank worked together to find a solution for optimising cash flows at Voedselbank Haaglanden. Five teams of six people worked together, starting with an out-of-the-box brainstorm in the morning, followed by drafting a business model canvas in the afternoon.

The day resulted in five concrete ideas, varying from “online supermarket customers donating money to the Voedselbank” to “collecting leftover festival coins at the end of events”. The event was a huge success: happy participants, happy client.

One of the participants: "I joined this challenge, because the underlying principle ‘bank voor een bank’ really appealed to me. The combination of the brainstorm session with the volunteers of the Voedselbank and the young professionals was very inspiring. The NIBC participants learned that customers of the Voedselbank only have 7 euros to spend per day. I think we’ve helped the Voedselbank with some inventive ideas to pursue their grateful volunteer work!"
