Since I have always been interested in business and entrepreneurship, I started studying International Business Administration back in 2008 at the VU University in Amsterdam.At the end of my bachelor, I specialized in finance and went on to do internships at Dutch private equity funds. I learned a lot during this period, and what attracted me the most about being an investor is that you can work so closely with entrepreneurs.
After my internships I went back to the VU University to obtain my master degree in Finance, in which I focused on finance for new ventures. Near the end of my master, when I was thinking about my next career move, I realized that I would very much like to be involved in high-tech innovation, where you can have a large impact on the world that we live in. For that reason, I decided to go to the TU Delft to increase my understanding of technology and innovation.
