In 1989, after working as a teacher for 10 years, I started my first IT company. I have founded many companies and started in 1993 a software company for solution in crisis and incident management. Many innovative solutions in safety and security are invented by me and are common everywhere in the world. After the sales of my companies in 2011, I went looking around where my knowledge and skills could be used. As a result, I now work for a number of days a week as a strategic advisor and project leader at the Foundation DITSS (Dutch Insititute for Technology, Safety & Security. The EU committee has asked me as expert evaluator for H2020SME proposals. This work involves about 2 days per month. I support various companies in entrepreneurial issues, give lectures, am boardmember of several organizations for instance the Fire Service Without Borders Foundation.
