About the Company:

Founded in 2012 and based in Amsterdam, Owlin extracts actionable intelligence from social media and newswires around the web. In 2012 Owlin was selected out of 354 startups globally to be part of Rockstart's Accelerator program. Currently Owlin is operating internationally and helps its clients to receive real-time insights of what is happening in the world.

About the Team:

Bas van Ooyen - Co-founder & Artificial Intelligence

In his spare time, Bas contributes to many open source projects. He contributed code to FreeBSD and worked on code now used by NASA. Just before he started working full-time on Owlin, he made his living with another company and built high performance data clusters. Together with Stanford University Bas published on n-grams in statistical machine translation. He believes that nobody should control your news demand.

Sjoerd Leemhuis - Co-founder & Business Development

As a former ORMIT management trainee, Sjoerd worked in the finance sector as an advisor and project leader for several years. He was on the finance team of the biggest merger in the Netherlands in history (ABN Amro and Fortis). He leaves a promising and comfortable career behind for an entrepreneurial adventure. He thinks that (secretly) everyone wants to have his own business. He believes that it's up to the fast growing startups to get the world out of crisis.
