26 October 2023 Consultancy.eu 1 min. read

Dutch data science consultancy Xomnia has roped in growth capital from an investment group, with the ambition to embark on the firm’s next chapter.

With currently around 85 staff, Xomnia has since its inception ten years ago established itself as one of the leading consulting firms in the Netherlands dedicated to data science and related fields such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics in the cloud.

Together with Foreman Capital, an Amsterdam-based private equity company, Xomnia now aims to fuel its next phase of expansion. This comes on the back of already strong growth – in recent years, the firm was already named several times as one of the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands by financial publication FD.

“This step is the icing on the cake of Xomnia’s 10th anniversary,” said Ollie Dapper, who founded the company with William van Lith. “An exciting next phase has now arrived, and we are grateful to everyone who has helped make it possible!”

Jordi Hompes, who came on board in 2022 as chief executive officer, added: “We look forward to continue building Xomnia together with Foreman Capital, and jointly shaping our international growth strategy.”

“Foreman Capital not only is a shareholder that provides the necessary capital for buy-and-build, they also bring the know-how to enable further growth and professionalisation.”

Commenting on the trust placed in Xomnia’s evolution, Foreman Capital investment director Maxime Rosset said, “We are impressed by Xomnia’s position in the Dutch market within data services, a sector with strong international growth prospects that offers ample opportunities for consolidation.”

“We are convinced that we will together expand Xomnia internationally over the coming years, both organically and through acquisitions.”

Xomnia works for clients across sectors, including the likes of ABN Amro, Albert Heijn, DAF Used Trucks, Enexis, Hema, Tata Steel, and VodafoneZiggo.
