Head of Innovation at Nest.vc Neat.vc

As the Head of Innovation at Nest, I am responsible for the design and execution of corporate innovation programs globally - ranging from corporate-startup collaborations, to workshops, to designing effect in-house innovation teams. I look forward to getting in touch and discuss views on innovation, sustainability and partnership.

Before moving to Nest I worked for 3 years at McKinsey and 1 year as a freelance consultant focusing on the energy, infrastructure and public sectors, and had the opportunity to work with great clients on their main strategic, regulatory and organisational challenges.

Always interested in how to push forward ideas I believe in. I coach initiatives globally in e.g. forestry, renewables and transport solutions.
