Dare to Design was founded in 2006 by Manon Hofstra. The company was located on a beautiful picturesque spot in Bergschenhoek nearby the Rotte. In 2007, the company grew with 100%, the first employee was hired. 2 Years later in 2008, the company grew with 2 more employees on 18 square meters. This was the moment we had to move out to a bigger location. Dare to Design moved to a beautiful location in the centre of Rotterdam, a location at the "Haringvliet" next to "Oude haven". An old building with memories and nostalgia. We were making use of the top-floor with a roof terrace with a view over the river "De Maas". During the time, our clients grew and it is good to be able to offer the right help for them. By now, our team grew up to 12 employees and we have great, smart, educated specialists on board. The office at the "Haringvliet" became to small and begin 2016 we moved to a big villa on the border of the centre of Rotterdam. The villa, that's located on the Oostzeedijk, is a perfect spot to receive clients for a good conversation about marketing strategy and communication topics. Give us a call, and we love to show you "the best kept secret" of Rotterdam.
