I'm an innovation catalyst turning ideas into reality

Combining 15 years of work experience in both large corporations as in digital start-up environments I turn ideas into action. As an experienced, multi-skilled innovation entrepreneur my core specialties are:

  • Design & Build products/businesses from scratch
  • Build high performing teams (inspirational, no-ego leadership) 
  • Get stuff done! Effective & efficient way of working (Agile, Lean start-up)

I find my strengths and energy bridging the gap between product/service innovation and execution. I simply love to turn ideas into reality and have built many products/start-ups from scratch. 

As entrepreneur, professional scrum master, leadership trainer and former corporate manager I help product innovation teams perform at the next level

  • A faster and cheaper product development process
  • A new product(or service) people love and buy
  • A high performing product development team

Access to a great team

I've met amazing and talented people during my innovation assignments and startup business building times. I'm strong in building teams and will enable you access to my network  of visual designers, developers & digital marketers, entrepreneurs, corporate innovators and other rebels. 

Meaning that I'll create the perfect team for each assignment. Either complementing your own team, or creating a new one.
