The establishment of the ENDYMION Network was in Amsterdam in 2015 when ENDYMION Amsterdam Coöperatieve U.A. was incorporated.
With the vision that (future) individual CPA-s (registeraccountants) should be emancipated into a next level of (entrepreneurial) independence by building a public social networked infrastructure
borne by a cooperative association.
The cooperative caters the (future) CPA's professional and personal ambitions by designing a public social networked infrastructure
. Such that competences, at the discretion of the individual CPA, can be deployed in a diversity of applications ranging from resourcing, co-sourcing to outsourcing. And service offerings are developed covering Consulting & Support, Professional Development and Audit & Assurance.
ENDYMION Network has interpreted Citizenship, as citizen of the City of Amsterdam, into "Brussels Sprouts Amsterdam".
By supporting contemporary talent through social
programs and sponsoring "Icons of Amsterdam
" including Stedelijk Museum
, Natura Artis Magistra
, Internationaal Theater Amsterdam (ITA)
, vv CTO'70
, Amsterdamsche Football Club (AFC), T.H.C. Hurley, singer/songwriter Dave Dekker
and Red Light Jazz Amsterdam
And by recruiting and selecting Bachelor and Master Students starting from their second year in University as trainees; such trainees are encouraged to develop themselves in Citizenship, Professionalism and Autonomy by providing them housing at the Campus
, access to the facilities of Sports Academy Amsterdam
, and a traineeship next to their studies through AXOLOTL Network
was founded by Endymion Struijs, founder of Contemporary Public Audit (CPA) firm ENDYMION Amsterdam and Stijn Huijsmans, founder of GrowthBusters: the technology driven sourcing partner of choice for growing organizations and the staffing & recruiting sector.
On one hand, we have experienced that it is increasingly challenging for companies to find, attract and retain (future) talent without investing heavily in their HR / Recruitment functions.
On the other hand we discovered that, from a future career perspective of high potential students, the return on employment next to their studies is often low, due to a lack of counselling at the start and during the employment, (on the job) learning and development of personal effectiveness skills.AXOLOTL Network
offers, to selected hand-picked high-potential students, a traineeship (“AXL Traineeship”), tailored to the student’s individual situation and long-term career ambitions.
An AXL Trainee is:
- interceded into a, long-term career relevant, flexible job at one or more employers,
- counselled on study progress and job performance and
- trained on personal effectiveness.
Students who have successfully completed the AXL Traineeship and their Master studies will reach pole position when entering the (full-time) labour market and will leverage on AXOLOTL Network’s relationships with partners in a.o., but not limited to high-end: Consulting, Banking, Audit, FinTech, Tax & Legal.
