Challenging the status quo


StudyPortals - Challenger50 2015

Sprout magazine recently announced their list of 50 most innovative startups in the Netherlands, which are working on challenging the status quo. We’re happy to be included in this impressive list together with other impressive startups such as LG Sonic, Picnic, Aviationglass, Catawiki and Bird Control Group.

Our mission – to make study choice transparent globally – is a challenging one indeed, and it’s great to see our efforts being noticed and recognized. To achieve our mission, we have made it easy for students to find and compare over 80,000 study programmes around 67 countries from more than 2,100 higher education institutions. In addition, StudyPortals is providing new ways for universities to connect with prospective students and focus on their return on investment in recruitment efforts. Last, our focus on research means that we are constantly looking for insights and changes within international student mobility patterns as well as shifts in higher education trends.

In addition to announcing the 50 best startup challengers within the Netherlands, Sprout also organized the ChallengerDay on 6 November that seeks to address the topic of smart collaboration as a means of effectively communicate with teams and clients while achieving profitable growth. The event helps challengers talk about how to boost their efforts and conquer the world, while networking with some of the most interesting visionaries within the Netherlands! See you at the ChallengerDay!
