In my current role I am part of the Radical Innovation Team in the Transformation Office at KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Our purpose is to orchestrate the Innovation Ecosystem and co-create the Innovation Strategy of KLM. As Innovation Ecosystem Lead I am responsible that this ecosystem shows us which innovation is done where, by whom, on which topic.
Our team establishes new cooperation opportunities with commonly-like creators in enterprises from the private sector, governments, universities, start-ups and individual entrepreneurs and connect them to our own innovation pioneers. Additionally I am part of the Investment Committee of the Mainport Innovation Fund, the start-up investment fund of KLM. Together with the MIF (mainportinnovationfund.nl) we scout, review and invest in national and international start-ups. As Aeronautical Engineer my focus lies in seeking, experimenting and implementing technological opportunities cross-divisional through KLM.
