Jakoba van der Mei

Growing up in a family business I developed a passion to contribute to a sustainable future. I like to use my project financing knowledge of sustainable energy for the energy transition in the Netherlands. After graduating with honors from a master's degree in finance, my finance career began in London, where I advised on mergers and acquisitions for Pöyry Capital and JP Morgan for three years. During a year in India I focused on the development of social enterprises. Back in Amsterdam I gained a lot of experience at the Japanese bank Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) in the project financing of wind energy and infrastructure. Before I started working at StartGreen Capital, I cycled from Alaska to Panama on a sailing bike, a beautiful and sustainable adventure! This has given me valuable insights into the need for a sustainable future and the opportunity to make a positive contribution to this together.

Business passion
I am enthusiastic about making sustainable initiatives possible together. Especially if we can accelerate the energy transition. I personally wish to develop in the field of technological expertise in the sustainable sector in order to stimulate the connection between innovative solutions and financing.
