Our core values

We attach great importance to our corporate philosophy. A philosophy based on five core values. Core values that we stand for every day. Which make us who we are and influence what we do. That is Operai.


We work with ambitious companies. Companies that choose to truly transform. Our ambition is to match that level of ambition by offering inspiration and advice to our clients so that they can grow. And so do we. Every day.


We always treat our clients with the utmost respect and in all honesty. Whether it is a personal contact or a financial offer, our approach is one of authenticity and transparency. From us you can expect “fairness in business”, a reasonable way of doing business. After all, you never do business alone.


The digital economy is an economy in flux. Technology is evolving and the world of e-commerce is evolving with it. Driving all this are platforms and marketplaces, which connect supply and demand.


The platform economy is a young market with young technology. Operai is therefore made up of people who are young at heart. People who want to make a difference and look for knowledge and innovation. We don’t expect tons of experience, but we do expect ambition and hunger.


A changing market requires a lot of adaptability and flexibility. We therefore closely monitor the market so that your company stays one step ahead of the competition. Moreover, we are active throughout the Benelux and can respond quickly.

Operai in Society

To test the most up-to-date knowledge with the field and share it with education, Operai participates in a number of initiatives.

Expertgroep Marketplaces

We started the Marketplaces “Start your own platform” expert group, which is part of Shopping Tomorrow, back in 2020. Together with Mirakl, we invite some 20 thougth leaders to write a white paper together every year.

Education Committee

At Zuyd University, we help think about the content of the curriculum so that it matches the professional field. This concerns Bachelor and Associate Degree programmes in Commercial Management with a focus on e-commerce.
