As an innovation manager within the energy market, I daily realize that we are in the middle of a revolutionary period of change that demands a different way of thinking. A totally new way of thinking. A way of thinking that needs startups for getting the answers. As an employee of Eneco, I’m proud of being part of the route to a sustainable planet. My experience on sustainable business models, having launched several marketing concepts (partly with startups) offers relevant experience to make startups successful in their launching period. Combined with my enthusiasm and positive energy, as a mentor of a startup, I think I will be relevant to them.
