Aside from his professional blogging activities, he is an event organizer, occasional board adviser and angel investor but most importantly an allround startup champion.
He lives and works in Belgium & can often be found working from home or from the Brussels-based BetaGroup Coworking Space.
Starting out as Internet marketing manager for a hosting and domain name registration services company called Hostbasket (bought by Belgian ISP Telenet), he’d worked in the online media industry for many years, including gigs as online media manager for Datanews / VNUnet (bought by Roularta).
In 2007, he started Plugg, a now defunct conference in Brussels aimed to raise awareness for Europe’s most promising Web / Mobile startups. He also organizes the OpenCoffee Club Brussels meetups and mentor fledgling companies through the Founder Institute and Seedcamp.
