BaseConnect mission is to develop a worldwide network that provides students and graduates with personal development opportunities; access to a platform with information and resources relating to campus life and career opportunities.
Baseconnect was started by two former students from the Krakow University of Economics and the Jagiellonian University in Krakow Poland. Damian was a former member of AIESEC, one of the world largest student organizations and Rafal was a former member of the Students Forum Business Centre Club, one of the largest student organization in Poland.
Damian attended numerous meeting while he was with AIESEC and in January 2011, he attended a conference for different student clubs and organizations and it was at this meeting that Damian realized that there was a place in the market for a platform that would assist in connecting students with academic life activities and graduates with future career opportunities.
Damian drew up the initial concept with his long time friend Rafal, and in February 2012 they teamed up with Ian, an Entrepreneur and curator of the Lean Startup methods, who loved the initial idea, and together they have been developing the concept into what we can see today and beyond. Rafal left the business in 2014 to focus on his new born child and young family.
