Ten years ago, I started a business with three friends from college. Recently we raised a whopping $50 million in investment money. A milestone we never imagined possible. Yet, since then it’s begun to feel pretty normal. Because we keep pushing our boundaries, creating new and bigger goals.
Back in our student days, we made a sport of getting our hands on the best summaries of textbooks and lectures. Which was actually quite a lot of work because it had to be good content. At a certain point my roommate and I realised: we could turn this into a project and let others share in all this knowledge. With the help of two other friends we created a website and so… StudeerSnel.nl was born! Today the site has grown into a platform where students can find all sorts of study materials – summaries, notes, practice materials, you name it! And we have an foreign version for international students – StuDocu.com.
