In 1994 Max Barenbrug was a student at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, The Netherlands ready to revolutionize the stroller market.

After graduating with honors, he co-founded Bugaboo in 1996 by with Eduard Zanen, an entrepreneur and doctor. After trying unsuccessfully to sell the design that was touted as too different, and with Zanen’s financial backing, the first model hit the market in 1999.
