Rapid growth

Founded in 2016, Spencer is the result of a close collaboration between Telenet & November Five. November Five took on Telenet’s innovation challenge to elevate the employee experience and assist the Telenet workforce throughout a maze of tools. In 2016, an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) was launched at Telenet.

Today, Spencer is a strong product company with a team of 35 people and 3 offices (our Antwerp HQ and offices in Germany and The Netherlands). Our partner ecosystem enables us to market, build & integrate the Spencer product for clients worldwide. We aspire to extend our product and partnership ecosystem to serve companies of all sizes.
