Quote
My passion for innovation and research and development originates in the fascination for people’s ability to build new solutions on existing knowledge or conceptualize and create them from scratch. The role of interpersonal interactions in innovation cannot be overestimated and despite my technical background in (Bio)Chemical Engineering, I’m convinced that understanding human dynamics are the most important factor to successful innovation. Each phase in the development of new solutions has it unique challenges and having spend 20+ years on the bumpy road of research and innovation, I would love to help start-ups with thinking along, reflecting, giving advice and sharing my network.
