Hi! My name is Michiel, I am the founder of this wonderful company. I am an Industrial Engineer and an Entrepreneur.

I am currently involved with the programming and management of the website.

Like many other great companies, Periodic Table came about almost accidently. In 2020, during a worldwide lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Michiel Bester decided to start working on a long-forgotten dream. The goal was simple, to provide students with free, aesthetically pleasing, online study material. At the time this was surprisingly rare, factoring in the vastness of the internet. Without surprise, this goal of had some ulterior motivate and that was to generate an income from the website. To make his real goal a reality he had to do 3 things. The first was to learn how to code, the second, was to build the website and the third was to start producing an income from the website. Over the course of about 5 months Michiel managed to build the perfect website with the help from a few of his friends. But unfortunately google did not want to approve his site to be hosting ads. It took hours of work to figure out what could be wrong with his website, which in effect lead to the second evolution of the website. Instead of supplying students with only a Periodic Table and study material, he started writing science blogposts. This is where things started to pick up and soon, he had a steady stream of income generated, which he repeatedly reinvested into the company. Jumping back to today Michiel is still working at Periodic Table where he is currently working on expanding his company even further.
