About us

We are Matthijs Wijnands and Rutger Op Heij. Entrepreneurs on a mission and founders of Passionfruit.

We share a vision but have very different backgrounds, skills and personalities. This makes us a very strong team. Besides a long friendship we share a mission as entrepreneurs: We want to make an impact on more than 10 million lives by using technology to empower self-employed professionals and entrepreneurs to conquer the world.

The idea of starting a company together originates from the time we were students. After gaining experience in business for several years we started Passionfruit – an innovative startup with the ambition to change the world for the better – in the beginning of 2018.

Mission

It is our mission to make an impact on more than 1 million lives by using new technology to empower digital nomads and freelancers.  

Imagine a world in which everyone has the opportunity to work and do business in a free and independent way. In which you are constantly being stimulated to be the best version of yourself. Where dreams are chased and people are capable of achieving more than they had ever imagined.

Imagine a world in which everyone works with passion and purpose. Where we  work together as a community of self-employed professionals and entrepreneurs to build a more beautiful, sustainable and happy world. Imagine how big the impact would be that we can make together and how many of the problems in the world we could solve.

We believe that we can contribute to that world with Passionfruit. Do you want to join us on our mission to make an impact on more than 10 million lives? Send us a message or join the Passionfruit community.
