Raoul has broad experience in managing companies, with a special interest and expertise in (international) Marketing, Sales and Business Development. His experience ranges from hands-on operational marketing and sales positions in smaller companies (including start-ups, such as Booking.com in the early days) to management positions in large corporations (Friesland Campina, Essent). Raoul holds a Master of Science degree in Business Science (“Technische Bedrijfskunde”) from Twente University and is a Chartered Marketeer (RM). Both experience as well as academic knowledge is used for the good of talented young entrepeneurs with promising ideas and drive, but with limited or no experience in setting up a business or the launch/marketing of their big idea.
