ABOUT ME

Hey, and thanks for visiting my website. I'm Sïmon, a straightforward dude and self-made entrepreneur since 16 years of age. I've started over a dozen different businesses since the late '90s with a handful of successes and twice as many failures. In the last decade, I've held several executive positions and advisory roles in global enterprises. I'm also a frequent public speaker at some of Europe's largest conferences on topics like e-commerce, digitalization and startups. I also focus on meaningful entrepreneurship by supporting entrepreneurs to explore and develop sustainable and impactful businesses.
