Fonk was founded in 2010 by Dirk, Niels and Erik-Jan who all had a drive to build great things! We started out in a tiny basement office on the Singel and have since grown into a team of 33 people, working in a castle in Westerpark . The team and business have grown significantly, but the mission remains the same: having a positive impact on the world.
