Junior Investment Manager, Unknown Group
Netherlands

I am currently working as Junior Investment Manager at Unknown Group, a venture capital firm based in The Hague, the Netherlands. I would describe myself as a genuine startup enthusiast and have extensive experience in the startup industry at Get in the Ring, a global pitching competition for startups and the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship.

I am passionate about innovation and startups and the role of innovation in the energy transition and am highly motivated to contribute to a sustainable future. I recently published my research on investing in early stage renewable energy startups and was honored to be one of the opening keynote speakers at Enlit Europe Paris in 2019. I graduated cum laude from Rotterdam University with a master degree in Global Business and Sustainability.
