I am an entrepreneur by heart, always on the lookout for new ideas and people to make it happen. This starts with identifying companies that we would like to become part of our BID Equity family, and then seamlessly transitions into an ongoing partnership to develop the platforms strategically and operationally. I accompany the investment cycle from start to finish, so to speak.

How would your colleagues describe you?

Perhaps as a notorious optimist with a hands-on, pragmatic approach to making things happen both on the commercial and technical side of things. I also hope they see me as a team player who likes to build trust across all stakeholders in the BID Equity ecosystem.    

What do you love most about your job?

I love the variety of topics and the wealth of experience that we systematically build-up. We meanwhile really know what works, and what doesn't, and can therefore add a lot of value to our portfolio firms in a short period of time. Seeing this through to the end is really fulfilling.
