About Us

Our goal is simple: increasing diversity within our societies by making global mobility more accessible.

MISSION STATEMENT
 

To achieve this goal, we aim to provide services that help clients make the process of moving to the Netherlands seamless by understanding that relocating abroad goes beyond the logistics of the move, but involves finding their place within the local community and adapting to the new culture. 

 

We are here to help answer client questions and provide opportunities for them to connect with their new society. We are here to ensure this new journey is enjoyed from pre-departure to the first few months post-arrival.

Tim Zhang

Founder and CEO

An expat himself, Tim worked in the United States as an international student affairs professional with an interest and education in global mobility. He faced firsthand, through the experience of others and his own, that supporting resources for expats when it comes to cultural adaptation are very limited.

 

With his mission of diversifying our societies by making global mobility more accessible, Tim moved to the Netherlands to create a company that specializes in supporting individuals and employees on their expat journey.

Wellness and Fitness
