Safeguard was founded by Ingmar Vroege and Gertjan Leemans, a powerful duo whose entrepreneurial endeavours trace back to their high-school days together. As business partners, they have worked on various successful ventures together. In 2016, they launched Pokeradar, an app that received 1 million downloads in three weeks. Apart from consulting for large clients like KLM and Achmea, Ingmar and Gertjan also worked alongside YPI, award winning H2 architects and shipyard leaders Feadship, to enable Virtual Reality (VR) visualization for the superyacht industry, for which they received CNBC media coverage. Successful exits were made from both of these ventures in August 2017 to enable a full time focus on growing the Safeguard app and ecosystem.
