As far as Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) alumna Suzanne Eikmans is concerned, plastic tokens to pay at festivals can be banished for good. With her Festival Wallet app, you can just whip out your smartphone and pay digitally among the hurly-burly of the festival. Eikmans recently picked up the VivA Visionista Award for up-and-coming entrepreneurial talent.
You would have thought an app like this would already exist, Suzanne Eikmans thought when returning from a festival to find a stockpile of forgotten plastic festival tokens in her pockets. They cost a lot of money but were now completely useless. It must be possible to solve this problem with an app, she brainstormed that evening with her boyfriend. And so the idea for the Festival Wallet was born.
