What's the connection between Lego and Lettuce?
A huge Lego® collection! That was Maarten’s dream as a kid. Today, he’s still creating all kinds of constructions. In particular, his own company and a system for growing vegetables − from leafy greens to medicinal plants − indoors, using hydroponics with advanced LED lighting.
In addition to founding the company, he now serves as COO − attending to the operational parts of the business. An entrepreneur at heart, Maarten studied marketing and applied economics with a focus on strategy and finance. Then, feeling he still didn’t have all the knowledge he needed to start and run his own company, he joined the Vlerick Masters in General Management programme.
