I am an entrepreneur who operates as international leader in the field of technology and human behaviour. I combine commercial focus with user centered design principles growing projects and organizations from basic ideas to internationally scaled-up successful enterprises. My passion and purpose is building creative teams around new tech-driven ideas with the goal of positively influencing people’s lives. I am a member of the World Economic Forum group of Young Global Leaders and have been trained at Oxford, Harvard, Instead, THNK and the University of Amsterdam.
