Kinoa is a startup born in Florence in 2016 from the idea of a group of young creatives. The desire was to create a living workshop that develops innovative projects and solutions starting by merging our interpretation of the present, our knowledge of the past and a clear vision of the future.
The products and services offered by Kinoa are the result of a work carried on by a team with multiple and diverse skills, ranging from scientific and IT disciplines to economic and social sciences.
The working method of Kinoa departs from the constant experimentation of the most recent technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, augmented reality. These are our raw materials, supplied by qualified partners like IBM and Microsoft. We have learned how to handle such materials and our first creations are a living testimony of that.
For Kinoa, these technologies are only the basis on which we build and shape the finalized solution for our customer. Alongside the developers work, there is in fact the work of those who, after a careful reading of the socio-economic context, are able to tailor the product on customers’ needs.
In our activities, we are supported by research laboratory Data Life Lab, founded by Kinoa together with the University of Florence, the laboratory focuses on the study of young people’s behavior and their relationship with new technologies.
Understanding the transformations of our present is fundamental, for this reason we have created a School of Innovation through which we carry out training and consultancy activities, dissemination through events and publications, and workshop organization for young people.
