Encast is founded by Michiel van der Pant
Michiel has studied business economics at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam.
Since 2000 he has gained professional experience with several smaller telecom providers. He has been drawn to entrepreneurship for quite some time, and after several start-up attempts that did not take off, he founded his own company, Teleena, with his partners. Teleena serviced anyone that wanted to operate their own mobile provider under their own name. Michiel focussed on the development of the operational and technical aspects of the company. An unforgettable experience with many unique propositions, sales offices in three countries and a staff consisting of more than 21 nationalities.
Between 2014 and 2019, he has been active as technical director of Simpel.nl. An amazing time in which Simpel has grown from 240,000 to more than one million customers, with only a small team.
Since the end of 2019 he has become an active entrepreneur by collaborating with software developers and new technologies. His focus is in subscription markets and transactions such as telecom, payments and energy. The importance and fast growth of renewable energy production, that has a hard focus on volume and much less on smart applications, has resulted in the creation of Encast.
The start of Encast would not have been possible without the support and dedication of partners Sia Soft and Kavango.
