About Rick Goud

Before co-founding Zivver, Rick Goud spent six years as a healthcare consultant for Gupta Strategists, having studied Medical Information Science at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Care Management at Erasmus University. Additionally, he holds a PhD in Medicine from the UvA on the development, implementation and evaluation of healthcare support systems.

Throughout his studies, Rick worked as a programmer. During his career as a strategy consultant in the health industry, he noticed that a variety of sensitive data was frequently being handled within organisations – from patient information to company performance and legal documents. Many of Rick’s clients had questions about data security and how data was being re-used, and it became apparent that there was a great need for a secure communication solution to safeguard and manage sensitive data (including for GDPR compliance). Shortly thereafter, Zivver was born.
