Founder & Managing Partner of Cyber Capital
After completing my Master’s degree in Economics at the University of Amsterdam in 2003, it took me 11 months and 43,000 kilometer to drive my motorcycle from Tierra del Fuego – the southernmost tip of South America – to Alaska. I then moved to Brazil, where I set up the company Stonerose Property that developed social housing projects. During my ten year stay in Brazil I gained a lot of experience with overseas investments, having to arrange for structure, taxation and legislation for both Brazil and The Netherlands.
