We are a success story

Inspiring German students in the border region to pursue their studies in the neighbouring Dutch city of Enschede – this was the project that Karel Otte, Sjaik Djorai and Michael Lülf took on during their time at university. The three students saw potential in the domain, developed a business plan and founded border concepts.

A lot has happened since that moment in 2003.  border concepts has transformed from a student-run start-up to a midsize company with an international orientation. Today, we organise numerous study fairs in various European countries and offer online and print projects for our clients. By doing so, we provide comprehensive platforms and contact opportunities for universities and prospective students in Europe.

Throughout all changes and developments, one thing has remained the same: our passion for providing services that succesfully bring together prospective students and higher education institutions.

Our mission:

With a combination of experience and enthusiasm, border concepts GmbH is positioned at the interface of higher education providers and prospective students. We offer outstanding opportunities to institutions that enable them to reach their target group in various European countries.
