The company

Kieskompas BV helps people make more responsible choices. Based on scientifically approved methods, Kieskompas develops web applications in order to make choices simpler and transparent, both to voters and consumers.

For the 2006 parliamentary elections in the Netherlands, Kieskompas developed an application to help voters discover which party manifesto fitted best with their own political preferences. This successful start – resulting in over three million unique visitors and a multimedia journalism award – was soon followed up by new projects in several countries and with several customers and media. Apart from the ‘political’ applications, Kieskompas focuses on specific societal themes such as politics, democracy and society; religion and philosophy; work, education and income; and health and lifestyle.
