Our Story..


A group of Dutchies looking to make Nijmegen a better place to live. Since we've all lived abroad and identified this integration issue in many places, we wanted to bridge this gap in our own city. With this start-up we challenged ourselves to see if we could run a business and make a social impact at the same time.

Why now?

In Nijmegen, we see an ever growing amount of local business dealing with an employee shortage. However, at the same time, more and more students from all over the world apply to Radboud University and the HAN. We found that especially these international students are motivated to work a part-time job (74%), but the platform to connect them to local companies was still missing. Hence, our initiative 'International Students Work'.

We strive for Win-win-win

We believe our company only has the right to exist, if all the stakeholders involved benefit from our activities. Companies have sufficient staff, students get an opportunity to integrate in Nijmegen and the University gets ambassadors throughout the whole world.‚Äč
