Director - Knowledge and Research – IDE

Hello, I’m Aaron Russell Director – Knowledge and Research @ IDE in the Venture Cafe Rotterdam-community! I’m working on the development of medical devices


I do what I do because I believe in helping people, and given my background in a variety of technical and developmental areas, I feel I’m able to contribute. I think it’s important to use your skills for the good of all of us!


As a visitor at Venture Café I’d like to recommend first time visitors to not put pressure on themselves to run around and meet everyone and tell their story in one go. I like to see the event as a social event with a side of networking, rather than the other way around. Networking in its stereotypical sense isn’t for everyone, and it’s generally easier at an event like this to make social connections – then networking flows on naturally from that.


What I’m doing is awesome because having worked in a number of industries, the area of medical devices means not only some really interesting technical challenges with cutting edge tech, but the result of all of your hard work really does improves people’s lives. And what better result could you wish for?
