Hi, I'm a Digital Dutchman ranked #1 investor in Eastern Europe! My passion: digital marketing, growth hacking and business building as a founder or investor. I worked as CMO for lastminute.com, country manager Sportingbet and CMO for Orbitz.com / Ebookers and I was CMO in Russia for market leaders lamoda (Rocket Internet), Ozon, KupiVIP, Enter Svyaznoi and Gloria Jeans.
I co-founded the local market leader in online travel, Travelata.ru and founded boutique growth hack advisory firm Acrobator.com as well as the world's first growth fund Acrobator.vc ($40mn).
My angel portfolio, built up over the last 10 years, consists of 20 companies such as miro.com, piano.io, harver.com etc. Jointly they're worth over a billion which catapulted me on Crunchbase to #1 ranking Dutch Angel, Top 30 European Angel and #1 foreign angel in the CIS region; TechCrunch calls me "the most prolific Western investor in Eastern Europe". :-)
I'm the creator of the C.A.S.H.C.O.W. B.O.M.B.E.R. marketing formula which I love to apply as an investor, consultant and MBA-lecturer. A 100+ companies and founders benefited from my growth hack formula; it has delivered an attributable $2bn in extra sales over the years.
I am happy to share my knowledge in growth marketing strategy & execution. I know how to be successful in fundraising. Proceeds of my calls will go into supporting the CIS startup ecosphere.
