Daan obtained both his BSc and MSc in Economics at the University of Groningen. During his studies he worked as an Account manager for QualityTie Netherlands. His fascination for implementing online strategies to differentiate QualityTie Netherlands from its competitors started then, and as a result Daan introduced an online platform for ordering products that is still being used at multiple student associations today. After university, Daan worked at Oaklins Netherlands as an intern for both the M&A and the ECM department. Daan is a passionate chef and always up for a challenge in various sport disciplines.
