20 years ago, whilst studying mathematics at one of Holland’s top technical universities, Coen took a job helping his local theatre navigate the then little trodden paths of the worldwide web – thus Peppered was born.
Over the past two decades, Peppered has played an increasingly important role in The Netherlands' cultural sector’s digital adoption and development. By expanding across Europe and transforming Peppered into a collective system of cultural organisations, Coen has continued to refine support for a sector with unique characteristics and challenges, providing superior solutions at a lower cost. As of 2018, Peppered’s Rotterdam offices boast 13 employees, serving almost 70 venues across The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
Coen still hasn’t finished that maths degree.
