We Are 1520

We are 1520 (that is fifteen twenty), a young start-up company based in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

1520 is all about millennial culture. We started it to combine all of our our passions - marketing, branding, concept development, event management and hospitality -  into one company and to apply our unique viewpoints and talents to them. In practice that means we operate under two banners: '1520 Consulting' focuses on millennial marketing and branding, events, concepts and strategies while '1520 Veggilicious' offers a specialized service that advises restaurants on the adoption and integration of vegetarian and vegan options into their existing offer.

All of our activities are tied together by the way we think, talk and work. We have been shaped by our international backgrounds (one Swiss, one German, both a little Dutch), our diverse education, our families and friends, their businesses and by urban youth culture. Consequently, ‘1520’ is derived from ‘1520 Sedgwick Avenue’, an apartment building in the Bronx, New York City, that is known as the birthplace of Hip Hop.

You could say we are quintessential millennials, if millennials would ever admit to being that. In any case, we have found that our way of doing things often speaks to other millennials, as well as to people of other generations that live their lives with open minds (we see you).

Therefore, if you are tired of washed up events and outdated hospitality concepts, you might be looking for what we have to offer. On the other hand, if you are a company that is looking to attract millennial consumers or employers, or a restaurant that is looking to expand its vegetarian offer - well, we can help you with that, too. Just scroll down and you might find what you're looking for.

We are happy to answer your questions, so feel free to contact us!

Team 1520 in action.
