Last week we were happy to welcome Tom Meulendijks and Yanick Dols – our partners from the Dutch startup SteelTrace. It was a great mix of fruitful work, amusing chats and fun.
We were engaged in interesting discussions, conducted meetings with team members, and brainstormed for creative ideas. Our guests got acquainted with the city during our evening walking-outs. Also we had a very agreeable conversation and got to know more about Tom, Yanick and their product.
SteelTrace is a young startup, launched to eliminate all the difficulties of the manual work. Steel is used in many petrol and chemical companies. To ensure safety and eliminate frauds, the material must be of the highest quality. For that purpose, there exist various certificates and it takes a lot of time and effort to sort through the necessary data. With the help of blockchain, Steeltrace transforms loads of manual paperwork into digital certificates and makes the tracing of steel origin less complicated and much more convenient.
For ambitious SteelTrace founders, a key to success lies in persistence; it is a result of a step-by-step, profound work. You have to put a lot of effort to achieve something. “Work hard and never stop trying, you never know how close to the success you are”, says Tom, showing his favorite motivational image.
