In 2011, during her final year of a master’s degree in bio-engineering, Sophie started the project and her first results were quickly noticed and awarded. She obtained substantial funding to grow the idea and develop a software tool. After five years of R&D, she believes it’s time to step outside the fold of UC Leuven. She created the company in the summer of 2016, accompanied by Rémy and Jacques-Olivier. Very quickly, major organizations in the catering and commercial sector adopted the technology and measured its power and added value. In autumn 2017, three investors joined the company. Their contribution helped speed up the company’s development and strengthen the team.
Since then, Youmeal has continued to progress and convince many food companies. Youmeal and its team are “driven” by 6 values: transparency, respect, reliability, optimism, determination and fun.
