Tell us a little bit about you...
I love spending time with my nearest and dearest and a good glass of wine. During the winter I check the snow conditions daily for the location of my next snowboarding trip. In the summer you can find me wherever the sun is shining, or in the kitchen preparing food for friends. When I'm not in Groningen I'm exploring new cities and wonderful places around the world.
What is your roll in the Founded in Groningen team?
I facilitate the strengthening of the ecosystem of innovative entrepreneurs in and around Groningen. I ensure that everyone who is contributing to this ecosystem is connected to the right people. Connecting people and initiatives spark great new ideas and cooperations and will help others to make the most out of their entrepreneurial adventure.
What do you do besides Founded in Groningen?
I'm the co-founder of Bureau Bino, where we help organizations, teams, and individuals to make them work more future-proof. We are passionate about making sure people make use of their potential in their jobs while staying on top of their workload.
