Machiel started after a bachelor’s degree in economics and languages with a more traditional business beginning. In 1999, after a number of years in business, he cofounded the company MyCall, which very quickly became the largest provider of Internet applications for travelers staying in business hotels around Europe.  The company was operational in 13 countries.  MyCall was successfully sold to iBAHN in 2004.  During that year, he took a sabbatical to travel independently throughout nine countries in Asia and to study Eastern-healing modalities.  At the end of the year, he moved to the United States to work for iBAHN as a Global Product Manager.  For 3 years, he successfully introduced and managed iBAHN’s products in the global market.

Machiel then really moved into the field of social entrepreneurship, and based on a dream founded the non-profit organization the Jung Society of Utah. In 2011 he started successfully the online educational organization the Jung Platform.
