About Kendraio

Kendraio has been running for over 20 years and has raised over 1M EUR in grants to research into interoperability and develop Kendraio App, a dashboard for asset and rights management. Our mission is to empower people and organisations with the benefits that come from increased interoperability and a culture of data-sharing

With more and more governments and organisations investing in better data portability, it’s an exciting time to be developing human-centric solutions and advocating interoperability. Kendraio is currently funded by Grant for the Web, a grant from Coil, Mozilla, and Creative Commons. 

Our current focus are the creative industries, specifically the music business. However, transformative benefits of interoperability apply to all areas of public and personal life. Access to large amounts of high-quality data empowers individuals, businesses and governments to make better decisions more quickly and more efficiently. This creates the opportunity for better legislation, products, as well as a more informed population and these things, in turn, lead to healthier economies and better quality of life.

What do we do?

Custom Solutions

Do you have a challenge that you haven’t found any commercial solution to just yet? As part of the general development of Kendraio App, we want to take on unique challenges that help us organically develop tools that benefit real people.

API Testing
Interoperability in the back-end requires a well-thought-out front-end to display data coming in through APIs. This is why we specialise in rapid application development (RAD), helping you pull data from many sources and display it in one interface.

Building interfaces

As specialists in integration and APIs, we are always happy to help you test and develop your API by integrating it into Kendraio App.
