Dennis Schouten is from the Netherlands. He studied information and communication technology (ICT) in HR at university of Rotterdam, and subsequently held management roles which involved the implementation of various technologies. He started a company in 2011 to better handle the indexing of resumes, and got into blockchain from there. He found IOTA in Spring of 2017.
