Passion for sustainability

Behind Plennid are two passionate social entrepreneurs: Niek and Kees. Two friends who know each other from Tilburg University, where they both started studying business economics after an earlier HBO study. Their similar opinions on the outdated economic models, combined with the ambition to make a real difference in this world, often made the two guys think about new ways to shape the future.

When they got the choice between a specialization in consultancy or sustainable entrepreneurship during their master strategic management, the decision was easily made. The sustainable specialization provided a lot of knowledge about future-proof business models. Models that contribute to a better world through a good distribution between social, environmental and economic factors. Because they wanted to share this knowledge with the people who need it, they created Plennid in 2016. A place where sustainable initiatives can grow.
