Giving people easy access to the digital world

We have one shared mission at Gomibo: Giving people easy access to the digital world. On this page, you can read about the how and why behind our mission.

From connecting with family and friends to arranging your finances or looking for a new job – everything happens online nowadays. With the development of telecommunication, the world is ever more connected. Cooperation between people, companies, and countries has become a lot easier because of these developments.
Access to the digital world is not a given for everyone. With the Global Digital Compact initiative, the United Nations (UN) aims to ensure that telecom products and services are available everywhere and at a fair price, so that everyone can participate in an increasingly digital world – regardless of your knowledge, age, or where you live.

What do you need to access the digital world?

1

Connectivity

Think of T-Mobile’s network, or Starlink’s satellites.

2

A device

A laptop, phone, or other device that allows you to access a network.

3

Access to a device and network

Accessing and acquiring both a network and a device.

Steps 1 and 2 have now been rolled out almost worldwide through initiatives by the likes of Google (Project Loon’s balloons) and Elon Musk (Starlink’s satellites). There are many manufacturers of smartphones (step 2), but getting such a product (step 3) and receiving advice or service on a repair (step 3), is often still a big hurdle. Globally, billions of people are thus left without access to the digital world, with dire consequences. That is the gap that Gomibo is closing.

Our mission is to make access to the digital world easier for everyone.

All our brands contribute to our mission

In an industry with an almost infinite number of options, we offer an overview of the full telecom offering with Belsimpel & Gomibo.

That way, customers find the product and network that suits them.
Even after a purchase, you can still get good advice and help in case of damage.

This way, Belsimpel and Gomibo accomplish in providing easy access to the digital world for our customers in the Netherlands and Europe.

You have a network, a smartphone, and a contract from a provider, which gives you access to a network. But what if one of the three pillars breaks down?

Then Tulip Assist comes around the corner. We offer users really good device insurance, at a fair price, and without small print.

This way, we ensure you can quickly access the digital world again if your device is damaged or stolen.

In today’s digital age, online identity fraud is unfortunately a problem. Verifai was founded based on a need we felt to keep online identity fraud out of all industries.

We do this by simplifying the digital checking of proof of identity, which includes reading the document and checking authenticity.

We do this to ensure you can participate safely and carefree in the digital world.

We believe it is time for a telecom industry where the customer truly comes first, regardless of your knowledge, financial resources or where you were born. Today, this is not yet a given everywhere.

By making our unique software available, we offer telecom providers worldwide everything they need to give customers easy access to their networks, products, and services.

Through that path, we reach customers worldwide and help them access the digital world.

How does Gomibo realise access to the digital world?

Every day since 2006, we have been building our own platform that easily brings together the complicated range of networks and products. By working with smart, unique technology, and the best colleagues, we have succeeded in building the best platform that millions of people now use.

In addition, with Gomibo SAAS, we are now making our platform available to existing telecom companies worldwide to make it easy for their customers to access the digital world too. This way, we reach even more people and have more impact.

People, environment, and society

Our team makes the difference, and without them, it would be impossible to achieve our mission. We believe it is important to go to the limit together for our customers, and also to celebrate successes together. This is also reflected in our core values, which describe what we stand for and how we treat each other.

Always going the extra mile means:

  • We go to great lengths to change the world of telecoms;
  • We treat our customers like family;
  • We embrace change to improve, accepting the challenges along the way.

The best idea counts, meaning:

  • Het beste idee telt, dat wil zeggen:
  • We welcome diversity to enrich ideas;
  • We insist that team effort always wins out over the individual.

Working Smart in the Gomibo Way, which means:

  • We work smart to maximise our impact and for a good work-life balance;
  • We solve problems at the core;
  • We make a good plan before we get started;
  • We like to draw a sprint.

Growing together means:

  • We create a safe environment where feedback can be shared in a respectful way;
  • We are at the helm of our own development;
  • We create a positive working atmosphere and do not forget to enjoy our work;
  • We celebrate successes together.

Our terms

We take good care of over 750 of our colleagues and consider it important to make a positive contribution to their happiness, health, well-being, and development. We do this through our terms of employment and Gomibo Benefits, among other things. For example, consider:

  • Conditions and training courses that, among other things, help you maintain a good work-life balance;
  • Advice, help or coaching from an expert on physical or mental health problems;
  • Weekly bootcamp, boxing, circuit training, and other sports benefits, such as discounts at the gym or free use of a padel court;
  • Outings, parties and get-togethers to really celebrate successes together;
  • (Mental) Health Benefits, such as a sports hour during working hours and advice on healthy eating. Our Health Weeks focus on these topics company-wide.

What impact do you make as a colleague?

As a colleague, you will contribute to a more inclusive and accessible digital world. We are happy with positive experiences from our customers and work hard for that every day. You also make an impact on the work floor: together with all your colleagues, you contribute to a safe, pleasant working environment where we enjoy working together and give each other the best. That is why we are a Great Place to Work!

Environment

To access the digital world, you need a product like a smartphone or tablet. We want to design our supply chain and organisation to get these products to our customers as sustainably and easily as possible. We are constantly working to make improvements in this, with the aim of increasing our positive impact and reducing our negative impact. You can read more about this topic on our Sustainability page.

Our impact in the area

No matter how much we will grow: we are still in Groningen. We are happy with the city because the vibrant student life and down-to-earth mentality of its inhabitants suit us well. This allows us to work with a fantastic team of colleagues every day to achieve our mission and goals. We are committed to the region and find it important to contribute to a prosperous Northern Netherlands.

We do this in various ways, including maintaining close ties with local educational institutions. We are the main sponsor of the intro week for students, the KEI week, and offer internships in a wide range of sectors. We also regularly give guest lectures and sponsor several study and student associations. Belsimpel is even an ambassador for the province and municipality of Groningen!

Our impact outside of it

We contribute to the Dutch knowledge economy with our specialised know-how on telecoms and technology, and put the Netherlands on the map as a hub of expertise in SaaS solutions. We also believe that with our mission, Giving people easy access to the digital world, we will make a positive impact on global society. We take our down-to-earth and transparent Dutch mindset with us, resulting in everyone worldwide having access to the digital world according to the same principles. We are working towards a society in which everyone can participate, whoever you are and wherever you come from.
