Plant-e was founded on September 14, 2009 as a spin-off company from the sub-department of Environmental Technology from Wageningen University. During PhD research Marjolein Helder and David Strik founded the company and hired Nanda Heshof in September 2012. After Marjolein received her PhD degree, she and Nanda started working fulltime for Plant-e in January 2013. In the same year a large, paid research project started and Plant-e was able to grow to its current core-team: Marjolein, Nanda, Pim, Paulien and Daniël.
