Our history

Thinking beyond existing structures

The Rebel adventure began in 2002 with ten chairs around a large round table. Sitting around that table, we decided to continue our careers in consultancy by starting our own company – we were the first Rebels. It was to be a company without a hierarchy, without bosses, without limits. A place where everyone could realize their full potential. We bring everything we have inside to the table. Intrinsic motivation, the urge to bring change, expertise and one constant focus: to make a real impact with our projects around the world. Here you can get to know the Rebel team, and the skills that every Rebel has to offer. They include strategic advice, policy analysis, partnership consulting, financial advice and the management of investments.

What we do

Societal impact

The drive and determination of that first step in 2002 informs how we work with and on behalf of our partners to this day. Trust is everything. In everything we do – and we do a lot! – our objective is to have a positive impact on the world. At the interface between the public and the private, because combining social values ​​with a keen business sense is close to the heart of all Rebels. That might seem like an ambitious goal, perhaps, but we have always relished a challenge. We invite everyone to join in, to become part of the change. Let’s think beyond existing structures. As governments, as companies and as individuals.

Challenge Your Professional Life | No Change Without A Rebel

In this book, Rebel and MENDO explore the concept of professional rebellion. Former and future Rebels deconstruct the concept of the office as a symbol for the conventional, the uninspiring, the predictable and predetermined. The office might not seem like the most exciting place to bring about change and make a difference, but you can trust Rebel to show you why that makes it all the more important.

Meet our Rebels

work at Rebel

If you become a Rebel, you’ll be given the freedom to do what you think matters in the world. 

Around the world, Rebels work on the issues that will affect our future, from sustainability, transportation, and urban development to healthcare and the social sector. We currently have more than 250 Rebels working on exciting projects out of our offices in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Washington DC, Toronto, Johannesburg, Düsseldorf, London, and Nairobi.

Using our financial-economic and strategic consulting expertise, we support clients in both the public and private sectors. In doing so, we never lose sight of our main goal: to make a positive impact on the world. 

We also believe in the value of small-scale initiatives and entrepreneurship. That’s why Rebel is made up of lots of small companies, working together under one banner. And that’s why our Rebels aren’t just employees, but shareholders as well. We not only advise on innovative initiatives – we invest in them.

We are still the same boys and girls who sat around that table. But the table has grown steadily larger, and we’ve had to pull up quite a few extra chairs. In Rotterdam, and in other world cities. Growth is not our goal. But we certainly have grown. We go where we are most needed, where we can achieve the most change. From Rotterdam, Antwerp, Düsseldorf, London, and Washington D.C. to Johannesburg, Nairobi, and Toronto. You can follow our journey on the map below.
