Why we started PlumPot

We have had experiences with people who are hesitant to try new things because they have limited themselves because they have defined who they think they are, and then remaining within the confines of that box. They remain in their box because they feel they have no right to venture out, they are scared. We want to challenge and inspire people to break through that mental box and try new things, broaden their horizons and constantly evolve who they are – Defy their definition!

That is the mission of PlumPot,  We are not sure what is the best way to go about accomplishing this mission, but we figured a good place to start is to simply lead by example.

Keri Plumstead

Hi there! My name is Keri (Plum) and I love chocolate. I also happen to be an engineering nerd, a gaming nerd, a sporting nerd and I read cool books from time to time – who says you can’t have too many passions.

Life now: Originally from South Africa, we recently moved to The Netherlands and we are LOVING IT! I work full time putting my mechatronics knowledge to good use (-_-) and outside office hours I try to persue some of the passions mentioned previously.

Life in the future: Who knows! Join us as undertake this exciting adventure…

JP Potgieter

I am a qualified Mechatronics Engineer, with most of my focus on Electronics Design and embedded programming – Altium and I are very good friends. However, my passion is sport, any sport. I played club cricket for many years before moving from South Africa to the Netherlands. Currently, my main sport is Crossfit.

My main goal in life is to bring engineering to sport. I feel we put ourselves in boxes too much, a sport person must be like this and a engineer must be like that. I would like to see these separate worlds come together and make crazy cool devices that will make the sporting world even more interesting.

Together we are PLUMPOT
