Paul is a fanatic and all-round sports player who considers himself too entrepreneurial for private equity, but not (yet) brave enough to start his own business.
After having spent an entire ski-season in St. Anton teaching lumpy adults how to come down the mountain, Paul started his bachelor’s in Economics & Business Economics at the Utrecht University. During his studies, he organized the 200th anniversary of his student association, carrying full-time responsibility over a >€2.000.000 budget.
Building these events from scratch paired with sneak-peaks in the start-ups environment during part-time jobs at Picnic and Gain.pro (plus a full-time internship in Private Equity) his interest in entrepreneurship and investing grew. After earning his master’s degree in Financial Economics in Rotterdam (cum laude), Paul interned at Slingshot and started his current position.
He strongly believes that when you are passionate and work hard, nothing is impossible.
