INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MADE EASY
Cool! Our story begins in 1990, and in 1999, and also in 2012!
Globally Cool is the result of a merger between iD Consultancy and Facts Figures Future (2012).
Since 1990, Alfons van Duijvenbode set-up and managed a number of independent companies. Including:
- Profound (international market research and business advisory services)
- LinkTank (web development and e-business applications)
- iD Consultancy (international marketing management, trade information services and systems)
In 1999, the other two partners Onno Roukens and Joost van der Kooij founded their market research company Facts Figures Future (FFF). Onno, at that time a professor at the Northern University of Leeuwarden, picked Joost as one of his better students. And that’s how it started.
In 2012 the three partners decided to merge their companies. Globally Cool was born!
