Utrecht, 7 July 2021 – MeeMaken, a Dutch investment company, is on a growth journey in the online learning solutions market. The acquisition of Splintt, a specialist in tailor-made digital learning solutions and the creator of Philpaper, a learning distribution system focusing on external workforces, is an important step in Meemaken’s buy-and-build strategy.
Splintt is an important addition to the MeeMaken group’s portfolio, which already includes the companies Infosequre, eWorks, The Beansters, L3online and MeeMaken Academy. The combined group will be a leading provider of digital learning solutions, with clients in manufacturing, construction, finance, healthcare & wellness, and the public sector. The combined product range will be a one-stop shop for online learning solutions.
Natasja Sesink (Operational Partner at MeeMaken): “We are extremely excited to have Splintt on board as a partner in building a leading company in online learning solutions.

Together with a management team from the combined companies, we will continue to provide customers with added value by expanding and developing the product range, both organically and through acquisitions.”
Natasja Jager (director and founder of Splintt): “The products and services offered by the newly-formed group of learning companies are complementary. The combination of our companies enables us to become a leading provider in digital learning solutions, with great potential to grow in Northwestern Europe. I am very much looking forward to realizing this together.”
