Founding a startup is great. And a lot of work on many fronts. I have done that successfully and would like to pass on my experience. I prefer to mentor BtoB Saas startups because that is where my experience lies. I like discussing business models and thinking about focus in industries and sectors. I have been an entrepreneur all my life in various industries. My belief is that entrepreneurship enriches yourself and your environment.

I have the most expertise in strategy, sales, customer retention and scaling an organization. I mainly invest in the Netherlands and Southern Africa.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

Investing and mentoring are wonderful ways to stay mentally young.
