Cycling for cancer research 2018

For several years mobco supports the KOTK 1000 km event in May.

This year we supported the Don Bosco Technical College of Halle and one of the Barry Callebaut teams. Big thank you to the cyclists and enthusiasts collecting all the funds for the cancer research!

Warm greetings from the mobco team

When we think about mobile we often see the ‘extra’ benefit. Only recently we hear companies talking publicly about their mobile-only projects; meaning the employee will only have their mobile device for work and will no longer require a PC. An unstoppable evolution.

In developing countries there is no time for evolution, things need to change dramatically fast to ensure a true sustainable economy in which all contributors benefit. “Change” in the local Baoulé language of Côte d’Ivoire is “Katchilè” and also the name of Barry Callebaut’s mobile project to record data in the ‘field’, provide feedback, do payments, …

The Katchilé project enables the Forever Chocolate strategy of the world’s largest chocolate producing company; by 2025 they have set their ambitions to eradicate child labor in the supply chain, lift more than 500.000 cocoa farmers out of poverty, become carbon and forest positive and have 100% sustainable ingredients in all products.

Mobile is changing our planet fast and making it a better place to live in, for everybody. Proud to be part of that change.

Warm greetings from the mobco team!

Warm mobco Greetings

This time of the year is a good moment to look back at all the initiatives we took in 2016 that go beyond IT and mobile business!

Our Indian Summer running team at the Ekiden marathon.

We decided in 2016 to focus on the Kom Op Tegen Kanker event. We sponsored Callebaut’s team and participated ourselves to the 1000 km bike event to raise money for the research against cancer and the aid to the patients.

Aside this major budget share, we also supported smaller local initiatives. – To Walk Again foundation – Ekiden marathon … other smaller local initiatives

We believe in a quality and sustainable business, we focus on mobile technology and believe in organic growth, the better business we do, the harder we grow. But every year, we spend part of that budget to help others grow as well!

Season’s greetings, The mobco team
