My name is Gijs. I am a former Private Equity investment professional and Rocket Internet Alumnus. In those roles I have seen and made close to a thousand business cases, hundreds of financial models, and millions of seemingly sensical arguments for why a business should do X or Y. I have had the privilege of building and managing a team of more than 100 people spanning 4 countries in Asia. That experience taught me that even if you know what to do, and how to do it, actually executing effectively and quickly in the messy real world is hard as hell.
As I got more experienced, I started noticing more and more that even the best run businesses make plenty of mistakes. I realised that in business the goal is not perfection, the goal is progression. And progress is made by making good enough decisions followed by structured implementation.
Venturelens is home for my ideas on how businesses can take better decisions and execute more effectively. Through Venturelens I help unlock progress through clear, focused thinking and common sense methods to drive execution. I only work with a few clients at a time, and I only take engagements if I’m sure I can add value. If you want to work with me, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
