Tell us about yourself
After some 5 years of corporate career, I became one of the early Fintech pioneers when I founded CrowdAboutNow, creating a category of crowd-investment companies in 2010. After that I was a founder of BuzzMaster and Ripple Yachts. After the 3 exits, I went on to focus on helping deeptech and climate tech companies, notably in clean aviation. I specifically specialised in strategising companies that have a long time to market and that cope with high uncertainty. I hold degrees in Mechanical engineering and Economics, as well as an MBA from HEC Paris. I am an active investor, serve on several government and corporate investment boards and am a mentor at several European incubation programs. Tom is originally Dutch but is currently based in Paris, France.
