Communications Support Officer
In November 2021, Sarah Kunze joined the StartLife team to support the communications department. Together with StartLife’s marketing manager, Bram van Beek, she takes care of content creation, which includes writing stories about the startups that StartLife collaborates with, what currently occupies them or their newest achievements.
In 2020, Sarah finished her Bachelor in Multilingual Communication at Cologne University of Applied Sciences, with a minor in Media & Journalism. Her bachelor thesis on crisis communication was a qualitative analysis on speeches about the Covid-19 and Climate Crisis, which was awarded with a 10. Her bachelor studies was combined with a marketing traineeship for a sustainable clothing brand in Barcelona, where she learned all about placing a brand in online contexts.
Sarah has passion for anything food related, especially when it comes food system transitions. This combined with her background in communication is what eventually brought her to Wageningen University & Research where she is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Communication, Health & Life Sciences. One of her main goals is to find ways to connect the knowledge produced across sectors that collectively can contribute to a really sustainable food system.
