KVK and SVB together build proof of concept in design sprint

The innovation labs of KVK and SVB worked in a three-day design sprint on a proof of concept in which the services of both organizations are digitally coordinated.

Data at the source

The principle of the proof of concept is 'data at the source', which means that we use each other's data but do not copy it from each other. Within the sprint, a well-arranged, small-scale service from SVB was chosen where KVK information is required.


The case revolves around the TPW A1 statement: if a company posts an employee (or a self-employed person without employees) abroad (EU), a statement can be requested from the SVB that proves that social contributions are paid for the employee. You prefer to arrange this together in one digital flow and with as little email as possible from documents or even physical letters. Developers, substantive experts but also lawyers came together in a three-day period to set up a test.

Nice insights

Matthijs Goense from Novum supervised the design sprint: “It's great to see how both organizations have used their resources to arrive at a win-win situation that - and more importantly - is entirely for the benefit of our joint customers. As SVB, we mainly work with citizens, but sometimes also with entrepreneurs, and then cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce is obvious. With this sprint we have taken an important step anyway and learned a lot from each other. ”

Said Akdim of the Innovation Lab of the Chamber of Commerce: “as a Chamber of Commerce we were looking for a case in which a government party needs Chamber of Commerce data and is willing to do a digitization project with us. If this succeeds, you as an entrepreneur will no longer have to request, save, e-mail, etc., but you can easily share Chamber of Commerce data with an organization that requests it, such as the SVB. This is part of our 'E-Identity' process; the digital entrepreneurial identity in which we respond to developments such as 'control of own data' and digitization for more convenience, security and cost reduction. ”
