‘We are all from Groningen originally, this is where it all started’, says Branbergen proudly. 'We work mainly for customers abroad. There are just not that many large companies with head offices in the Northern Netherlands; and those are exactly the type of customers we work for.’
But not to worry, Branbergen settled in Groningen for a reason. ‘We still operate from Groningen and we will not be leaving here anytime soon. This region is perfect for IT companies. Many highly-educated people live here, there is a university and the infrastructure is second to none.
Dataprovider very much needs this IT knowledge. ‘This is because our company collects all possible data on companies via the Internet. We then structure those data so that they are easily searchable. We are really a kind of super-Google! With one difference: Google always shows the best result only. Companies want all available results and we can provide those.’
