MOTIVATION
In everything I do, I believe in making a difference by combining my passions for
entrepreneurship, new technologies and investments.
My passion for entrepreneurship allows me to think in possibilities and turning visions into
successful projects. My passion for new technologies helps me to create innovative solutions by
looking beyond current technological standards. My passion for investing helps me to consider
risk/return tradeoffs and make the visions and new technologies profitable.
Experiences in the past years helped me to further develop my passions. For instance in the
board of the study association and with dozens of consultancy projects at Clearfields SIX.
I've learned to aim high and reach goals by gathering the right people and answering the right
questions. By applying my passions in these projects I believe I have already started to make a
difference.
