Young Venture Group was founded by Wim de Jong. Wim de Jong was born in 1982 in The Hague.
At the age of 12 Wim started selling coffee and cakes in the forest across his family house. A few years later he started to trade in used motorcycles from his parents’ backyard.
The ambition to be an entrepreneur started at a young age.
During his high school days, Wim decided to organize a big exam event. After the event being completely sold-out, his first company was created during his high school days and many high-school events followed.

In addition to his student days in Rotterdam Wim founded the first and largest catering company in the county for and by students. Under the name Studentdiner the company was active in all major student cities.
After closing his university schoolbooks, Wim started his professional career and developed his entrepreneurial skills even more. This time supported by several larger main sponsors he organized hundreds of youth events and camps.
During this time, Wim invested his savings in buying a house and renting it out. He got the hang of it, and a few years later, Wim developed many housing projects in and around The Hague, varying from twenty to hundred homes per project.
This all resulted in a broad-based real estate organization under the name Young Group. The company has been in the PropertyNL top 50 developers in the Netherlands four times in a row. One of the highlights was the purchase in 2016 of 13,000 m2 (vacant), known as Seven Cities Complex .
Within a year the buidling was completely rented out to approximately 75 different companies. In 2017, the company redeveloped a former office building of 6,000 m2 into a student hotel that is still owned by The Young Venture Group.

In 2020, Wim decided to split his current company up into three separate organizations, with three co-founders involved:
To provide the companies with the best employees right now the holding company makes plans to start Young Work, a recruiting venture.
At all times, the group is steadily working on creating new Young companies with the right co-owners in promising sectors.
Our ambitions are high within Young Venture Group , therefore we are always looking for talented people who want to use their knowledge and experience to further develop a company and themselves.
