Passion Helping Innovations become succesful companies. Working with companies and innovations with possibilities for global success. Helping companies to grow and scale their solutions to global markets. Combining cleantech with software. My Background? I have worked within cleantech related software businesses for the past 15 years, mostly related to sustainability management and energy efficiency software solutions. In 1999 I founded a sustainability software company Proventia Solutions, which grew from university spinn-off to roughly 25 people succesful software company with global multinationals as its customers. We raised 3 rounds of VC funding and became the Nordic leader in sustainability software solutions. Proventia Solution was sold in 2009 soon after which I joined BWise a governance-, risk management and compliance software company as the director of business development. I worked at BWise first 2 years in Amsterdam area and then another 18 months at the BWise US organisation based in Portland Oregon. I have business education, with strong emphasis on accounting and environmental sciences. The problems I solve are mostly related to helping innovations become succesfull and scalable businesses.
