What motivates me is to continuously discover new, disruptive innovations that have an impact on society. I get energy from sharing thoughts with entrepreneurs and working on market opportunities. Interaction and personal relationships are important for this. That is why I like to look for connections and collaborations with people and companies within our network, because I am convinced that collaboration is extremely important towards success.
Since the end of 2013, I have been associated with IRIS, as an investment manager. Prior to this, I worked in various roles at Van Lanschot Bankiers and SNS Securities for six years, mainly in positions that focused on investing in listed companies. In addition to my Bachelor's degree in Business Economics and Business Administration, I am a registered investment analyst (RBA). In 2012, I started my own company. I combine this investment and entrepreneurial experience in my current role, where we do not sit on the chair of the entrepreneur, but instead engage as an active and enterprising investor to create as much impact and value as possible.
