The Dutch data technology company Elastic is honored worldwide. Barely four years after it’s foundation, Elastic has customers as Facebook, Netflix, Uber, but also the more established companies. “Thanks to our open source model,” said founder and CEO Steven Schuurman (40).

Banon joined them, and Elastic was a fact.
