The need

Digital innovation demands a strong foundation: broad knowledge, because society is complex; deep knowledge, because only a dot on the horizon will not get you any results.

InnoValor combines broad knowledge and overview with a passion for digital innovation and a enjoyment for getting results. We are flexible within our disciplines and are independent. From this basis we deliver our services and build our software. We are proud of our flagship product ReadID, world leading in NFC-based identity verification.

Strategy – innovative software and research based advice

InnoValor started as a company advising organisations how to realise digital innovations, and has now become both a software company as well as an advisory company. We don't forget our academic roots while doing this: we use a research-based approach and innovative software. This is not only based on the approach, but the academic background of our people as well. To stay thought leaders, we continuously participate in research projects with scientific institutions and other innovative organisations.

We distinguish ourselves by excellent knowledge in the areas of data driven services, both people driven (personal data management) as well as organisation focus (creating better services). That is being noticed: among others, we won Accenture Innovation Award for ReadID and the Computable Award for Business Makeover. In 2019 we won the FS Tech Award and the Florin Award for Excellence in Fintech with ReadID, as well as the regional start up award. We are an FD Gazelle, due to our continuous substantial growth.  

Because groundbreaking innovations are rarely realised without collaboration, we are proponents of innovating in consortia and involving stakeholders in innovationprojects. We are independent and sometimes a bit strongheaded. We are only statisfied when our product has impact for our client.

In 2018 we also launched the business makeover platform for business model innovation.

History - from institute to spin-off to award-winning scale-up

InnoValor was founded at the end of 2013 by former employees of the research institute Novay and Novay spin-off INZYCHT. Because of this, InnoValor has a long history in ICT-related research and research-based advice which dates back to 1991. Novay was a Technological Top Institute recognized by the Ministry of Economics. Founded by organisations such as KPN, Philips, ING, Rabobank and IBM in collaboration with several (technical) universities. Until 2009 Novay was calles the Telematica Research Centrum. Novay ended its activities in 2014.

ReadID as a product was introduced in 2014 and in 2016 we introduced the name ReadID for our NFC passport reader. Since then we have grown to over 50 people in total.
