Manager Business Matching at Business Leaders

Startupbootcamp Commerce Amsterdam Mentor

More than 10 years experience in sales, marketing and innovation. At this point responsible for Business Matching within the Business Leaders network.

Business Leaders is a cross sectoral network of almost 500 CEO’s/Entrepreneurs/General Managers within the Netherlands. Members are all responsible for large or medium sized organizations. We founded the company 4 years ago and now are the leading network for CEO’s within the Netherlands. From September 2015 doors will be opened to Belgium. In 2016 other countries will follow.

Our main goal is to enable cross sectoral learning as well as establish collaborations and business deals between our members. In order to realize this, our Business Matching team proactively initiates value adding introductions between members. But also matches between members and experts and/or innovative companies/startups we spot or get introduced to.

So being connected to promising startups is key to Business Leaders and affects one of the main topics of our members. It is our drive to make the right matches based on both the needs of our members and the needs of these innovative companies.
