Since 2010, I have spent considerable time studying exponential technologies and their impact on our future. I have attended several Singularity University programs, and I have co-authored “Face the Future”, co-founded DareDisrupt and arranged conferences and spoken to numerous audiences to reduce fear and unleash creativity. I am a positivist – I believe the future will be so much better.
I call myself an Impact Investor, because I believe that start ups can be effective tools to create positive change in the world – in a financially sustainable model. I have thus helped co-found and lead several start ups.
My passion is to help release the potential of individuals and organizations to create greater impact and results through innovation, leadership and strategy development.
I have successfully founded and run social entrepreneurships, non-profit and for profit organizations impacting job creation and competence development for thousands of people in more than 30 developed, emerging and developing countries.
My work experience comprises a range of settings from the United Nations and research organizations to small and large non-profit and for-profit organizations. I have spent considerable time and energy working against bribery and corruption – including supporting the succesful mission of making the World Bank fight corruption – and remove tax deductability for bribes in the EU.
I personally enjoy both working directly with clients – speaking, facilitating innovation, leadership and strategy seminars, and working more indirectly as angel investor supporting entrepreneurs realize their dreams of establishing successful social enterprises and other ventures.
