I have been the Executive Chairman of Ovizio Imaging Systems since 2014. I joined Ovizio's team for an exciting challenge after a 25-year career in venture capital, private equity, consulting and financial management.
Details are everything in our business. Being a natural analytical thinker, with a strong ability to quickly analyze situations and evaluate opportunities, I am happy to join a highly skilled team of experts, and pursue the goal to rapidly establish Ovizio as a leader in cell culture monitoring.
I am very passionate about high-technology and that’s why I studied Engineering. With a Master’s Degree from the KU Leuven in that discipline, I started my career as an IT consultant at Accenture. Four years later I shifted to my second love - Venture Capital – when I joined Fortis Private Equity (now BNP Paribas Fortis). Through successive roles in various venture capital funds, both in Europe and in the US, I specialized in hight-tech venture capital and successfully selected, invested and divested high-technology companies .
Being able to give some insight on venturing and entrepreneurship and to share my experience are what drive me and it makes me really proud.
