I started my career as a strategy consultant for BCG, training my analytical thinking and PowerPoint skills. I’ve done internships with Google in Dublin and P&G in Newcastle. My bachelors is from Amsterdam University College, specialising in cognitive neuroscience, and I have a research master's ‘Business in Society’ from the VU and UvA. During my studies, I also completed an ‘arts and research' program at the Rietveld Art Academy. Next to doing my little part in creating the future by finding the right entrepreneurs, I do stand-up comedy and the startup world is great inspiration. I also always say I like reading but actually do it way too little, and I box because it’s a great way to legally hit someone.
