Sander Schouten

CO FOUNDER & COO

A wide interest and a strong ambition for improvement, those are the two main traits that characterize Sander.

It was while studying for his university degree in Exploration that he soon realized that natural hydrocarbons as an energy source wasn’t the long-term solution that the world needed. Using his knowledge and combining it with business sense he found the answer in a renewable energy startup that is still active today. 

The energetic and flexible atmosphere of the startup made him realize that the industry he was working in was too conservative, so he decided to change course. It was within a tech firm that he found the drive that he was looking for.

This was when he met former Dutch National Coach, Louis van Gaal, and he used this opportunity to introduce him to the latest tech on the market: Virtual Reality. It was that encounter that led to the idea for a solution that we now know as Beyond sports.
