Founder of Science meets Business
On Friday the 30th of October 2015, our teammate Christiaan passed away – far too young – in a canoeing accident. He was the father of Science Meets Business, the one who brought us together. He meant a great deal to the (scientific) community and can be proud of everything he has accomplished, bringing people together to inspire one another and to create great things.
