Last week you were able to read how Fred and I met and how we started with the idea to develop on the Apple Newton. This week I would like to continue our journey and tell you how we started and changed our path into Market Research.
As I was still in the military service, we quickly got our cooperation going: I started developing in my ample free time. In the spring/summer of 1993, Nebu was born!
The business for the sales applications was pretty successful, having clients like a Dutch lingerie sales organization, Massey Ferguson and Range Rover as clients. We soon needed more capacity for software development and were extremely lucky to run into a 400 and 800-meter sprinter, a tall skinny guy. In December 1994 Jan Raaphorst joined Nebu. And guess what? Next year we celebrate Jan being with us for 25 years!
