Since being little I’ve always said I’d help make the world a better place – I love helping people increase their impact in the world, developing creative solutions and getting stuff done – no matter what the odds are. I started my career in strategy consulting at Deloitte in the Netherlands. Since then, I have worked across countries, cultures, continents and industries on complex (think big and hairy) problems and major turnarounds, requiring organisational insight, strong analytical skills and stakeholder engagement. An adventurer at heart I live to explore and travel, both through work and play.
The latest exploration has been in the investment space, where as a nascent investor 6 years ago I learned the dynamics at play and the skewed playing field. The many issues with investment practices and perceptions currently are audacious enough to focus my attention here; where my wish is to create a world where there is enough for all. Therefore we started EPIC – Exponential Positive Impact Capital/ EPIC is on a mission to democratize investment and thereby accelerating impact. We at EPIC bring impact driven startups and investors together for long term and sustainable impact-funding and development, in a collaborative, constructive way, leveraging the revenue based financing instrument, much better suited for more start ups than just the 1% which gets venture capital funding currently. Let’s make an exponential positive impact together!
