Young talent has a big impact. Our founders, Hugo de Koning, Bram Bosveld and Rogier Thewessen, are the living proof of this. In 2000, when they where still students, they were looking for a part-time job. They quickly found out there was not any platform for their needs and target group, so they created it themselves: studentenwerk. What started out as a simple website grew out to become an innovative employment agency in the Dutch recruitment landscape which changed it forever.
The Top 250 Scale-ups 2019 (Top 250 Groeibedrijven 2019) is based on our ScaleUp Dashboard, which is an annual research into Dutch scale-ups conducted by our Academic Director and Professor Corporate Entrepreneurship at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) Prof. dr. Justin Jansen. 2019 is the third year that the Top 250 Scale-ups (Top 250 Groeibedrijven) is published and it is presented together with nlgroeit.
