About Us

IctQ B.V. was founded in 2018 by Sander from the age of seventeen a thought existed in the back of my mind. And no matter what life brought the idea for this company didn’t fade away and only grow stronger over the years.

Because things just happen in life, I had to start working at the age of 16. I didn’t get the opportunity to get all the education that some of my friends had, but from the age of 6, I was lucky enough to have a computer back in the day you had to type a lot of code to get something done. I think it was around 1999 when my father said why don’t you get a job in the ICT and before I know it I got a job, and since then I have done nothing else. Spending much of my childhood behind the computer was more than enough to get enough experience to get a great career, and along the way, I was getting better and better in the things I did. I had learned everything I know by just never to give up when I ran into an obstacle.

I have been working as an ICT consultant for almost 20 years now in all kinds of different jobs and positions, and from 2008 through 2012 I owned my own company in the Identity and Access industry, and I was very successful with it. But as always with life, life suddenly decides to take a different turn and together with my wife we had to take care of our five children, and this was not easy to combine with my company. So I decided to step back from that first company and focus on being a consultant with a big telecom/ICT company in the Netherlands.

From this first experience, from which I have learned a lot, I started to think about my dreams from so many years ago. And over the years I have seen things first hand that there are just some things that are only not fair and that some outstanding and brilliant young people are just not getting the opportunities they so much deserve. My dream from so many years ago was still there in the back of my mind. And over the years the feeling got stronger and the more I started to think about the more I realize that the moment was here to try and to make a change in young people lives that are living everywhere in this world.

So during a boat trip in Croatia, I overheard some people talking, and I looked at my wife as we both heard the story of that guy that was not having the best streak of luck. But that still didn’t change the fact he was a brilliant guy.

At that moment in time, we decided to start IctQ B.V.

Based on my previous experience I have decided to take it one step at the time and build something new from the ground up. And along the way, I hope I’m able to give chances to people that were not so lucky as me but still deserve a good a fantastic career.
