I get a lot of energy from realizing complex but tangible projects, setting up new initiatives and taking responsibility in a deal-driven environment. After my master's degree in Civil Engineering in Delft, I started at Leveraged Finance via the ING traineeship. There I arranged acquisition financing for private equity parties. After a short period as a Finance & Strategy Consultant, I spent most of my career as an investor in renewable energy and infrastructure with British investor John Laing. At StartGreen I am setting up the StartGreen Transition Fund and investing in companies that are active in the circular and energy transition.
The enormous task of shaping the circular and energy transition requires action on the dividing line between entrepreneur, finance and technology. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to actually make an impact on this dividing line and to do so in an entrepreneurial structure.
