I am a business entrepreneur. Passionate for innovation, creating new things with a business sense is my main motivator. Nowadays, I am helping other start-ups (in-house or through corporate venturing processes) to define their value proposal, strategies, grow their business, get funding, and create teams and processes. I collaborate with them as an early investor, as a member of their Board of Directors, as an Advisor or as a Mentor.
