Wout Withagen is algemeen directeur bij internetbureau Freshheads. Het bureau bedenkt, ontwerpt en ontwikkelt online applicaties. De afgelopen jaren is Freshheads uitgegroeid tot één van de top tien internetbureaus van Nederland (Emerce 100) en werkt onder andere voor Randstad, Philips,, VNU Exhibitions en Interpolis.

Freshheads staat voor ‘nieuw internet’. Toegankelijkheid van gegevens, het opnieuw delen van die gegevens en de uitingsvorm ervan staan hierbij centraal. Tijdens de inspiratiesessie van Freshheads vertelt Wout waarom een solide basis, gebaseerd op API technologie, marketeers en creatieve ontwikkelaars vrijheid geeft. Met de juiste API-strategie ben je flexibel in de marketingstrategie, bureaukeuze, app development en doorontwikkeling. Freshheads vertelt waarom en hoe je deze strategie binnen een organisatie kunt implementeren.
