Initiating is my passion

Within AXVECO I am mainly involved in Entrepreneurship. Together with Axveco and two other established names in the Financial sector, we currently set up one Index Cryptocurrency fund and one VC Blockchain fund. In addition to my work at AXVECO, as a shareholder / partner / advisor, I am involved in two (by me initiated) companies. I am also a researcher at the RSM, Erasmus University where I focus, among other things, on the success factors of innovative companies (including in blockchain and AI applications).

I started my career as a lawyer at NautaDutilh. I have mainly focused on M & A and Corporate Governance. After 5 years I have developed further by following an MBA at IE Business School in Madrid. Here I discovered my passion for innovation. After my MBA I worked at an investment company, where I was allowed to monitor various innovation companies. My passion lies in initiating projects.

Technological developments will have a major impact on the business operations of medium-sized and large companies in the coming years. Continuous transformation of business models will become increasingly important. Entrepreneurship combined with risk management will be placed in the DNA of the management. The search for the right mix between entrepreneurship and risk management is what AXVECO can advise on. In addition to strategic advice, AXVECO can also support the execution of a transformation process.

I prefer to spend my free time outdoors. Running, hockey, sailing and skiing are my big passions.
