StudeerSnel.nl was started by Lucas van den Houten, Marnix Broer, Sander Kuijk and Jacques Huppes who all studied at TU Delft. the four students from Delft thought that it would no longer fit into this era to share summaries in class, or to email some practice assignments to a few friends. According to them, it would be much more convenient if there was a central online environment that everyone had access to and to which all students could share their own study documents. StudieSnel was born and grew in a short time. Almost 100, 000 students now share their knowledge via Studeersnel and this number grows by more than 400 per day.

Magnet.me
Vincent Karremans student from Rotterdam, Freek Schouten and Laurens van Nues, both student Sustainable Energy Studies, Delft are the founders of Magnet.me. This company was founded at the end of 2011 and has been active online in the recruiters market since September 2012. Magnet.me brings companies in contact with graduates. The makers of the website use social media techniques for this purpose: students who orient themselves on the job market create their resumes and indicate their preferences for employers or internships, companies create a profile with vacancies, let them know what kind of people they are looking for. As soon as there is a match between a company and a potential employee, it automatically receives a contact request à la LinkedIn. Once matched, companies can view the CVs and send their vacancies, messages and events to their contacts. Magnet.me has now secured over 300 companies and 8, 000 students.

The collaboration
Magnet.me has managed to attract many recruiters and companies through the rapid growth, but always has to ensure that there are enough registered students. Studie Snel is fast on track to attract all students in the Netherlands, but because of this focus it has built up a backlog in business contacts and the associated earnings model. Studeersnel and Magnet.me can reinforce each other. Steeersnel provides a constant increase of students and Magnet. With its business contacts, ME uses the large advertising potential that Studeersnel has with more than one and a half million page views and 200, 000 downloaded documents per month.

"The cooperation will continue to expand in the future, with both start-ups continuing to reinforce each other and could even merge in the distant future". Thus Marnix Broer from StudeerSnel.nl

In any case, it is a collaboration that deserves to be watched.
