During his studies at Delft University of Technology (NL) he noticed that students wasted a lot of time searching for study resources to prepare for their exams. That's why he founded the sharing platform StuDocu together with three friends. Today, the platform provides 15 million study documents that have been shared by students and are accessible to everyone in the world. Documents are nicely organized per university and per course. Currently, 22 million students are using StuDocu to access high-quality  materials.
