The Founders

Egge Haak, the founding father of Inchainge, saw real potential in ‘The Fresh Connection’, a business game originally developed by Dutch consultancy firm Involvation. He decided to create a new business focused on this new way of experiential learning. In his quest for a partner in crime he quickly knew who his ideal partner could be.

Hans Kremer was someone he had worked with before and who shared the same passion for Value Chain Management. The dynamic duo struck a deal with Involvation and transferred ‘The Fresh Connection’ into a new company. They quickly started building a global network of training and consultancy firms with expertise in this niche market.

The Trio was completed in 2012, when a government funded project to create awareness about Supply Chain Finance ultimately led to the creation of our second business game, ‘The Cool Connection’. Egge and Hans were approached by Michiel Steeman, also known as the Guru of Supply Chain Finance. He joined Hans and Egge and thereby completed the partner trio that successfully manages Inchainge today.

Our Mission

Inchainge’s mission is to support a more sustainable and inclusive world, where every student and professional has the chance to understand and improve value chains. Our team-based simulation games not only touch on core value chain topics such as supply chain management, working capital, and the circular economy, but are also designed to stimulate alignment across disciplines.

Value Chain Management is crucial for every position in every industry – it is about optimization in every sense of the word and includes circularity, risk management, a no-waste mindset, and taking responsibility. Our values are reflected in our own team, our simulations, and our events and projects. We strive to provide equal chances to everyone, and we want to empower people to be part of a global network!

We are Inchainge - We Develop Value Chain Leaders!
