Welcome to the new app!


Since our founding in 2016 (previously known as Blendin) and the launch of the Welcome app in the Netherlands in 2018, we’ve created a platform where newcomers can easily find (local) connections, activities, and information. Over the past few years, we’ve been working on improving the app.

In the past year, we discovered that using a ‘low-code’ platform allows us to build and change the app faster and more conveniently. After careful consideration, we’ve decided to completely rebuild our entire app using this technology. This means that we’ve built the app in a different way than before, the old app will stop working soon, and all users can now download the brand-new Welcome app!”
