Kuno Bakker is an entrepreneur since 2001. He started his own event production company Buro Fris. With Buro Fris (and his team), he created several self-initiated or commissioned events like Wolkenkrabber Weekend 2007, Skills Talents, Free Gaming 2009, Lezersfeest 2005 – 2010 and the opening of Rotterdam 2007 City of Architecture at the Central Station building site.
While working on projects for primary and secondary schools (Brains@Work, FIRST® LEGO® League), Kuno discovered that he could provide kids with the opportunity to learn and develop their technical skills. Since 2013, Kuno is managing director at Stichting DOENK. Together with Hanan Kariouh, he helps primary and secondary schools with implementing educational programs around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in the Rotterdam-Rijnmond region
