About Wim

I’m a technical product developer for next level businesses. With my clever combination of skills I give your start up (or scale up) company the essential boost.

My unique set of bachelor's degrees in Applied Informatics, Marketing and Digital Marketing gives me a head start in understanding the intricate connections between the technology and market behind the product.

I aim my focus on innovation and don’t shy away from a challenge. That’s how I quickly evolved from small scale software development to the digital product development for tech startups. My career path helped me grow my skills in tech & business. My past experiences qualify me to spot opportunities others might still be blind to. By sharing my lessons learned, new products and businesses gain momentum.

Innovating pitch? Let's hear it. Scaling up? Yeah! Want to make a difference? Let's do it!

This IWT* project, supported by the government, focused on transforming Archonia's business model to a client-driven model. Clients (a.k.a. ambassadors) were responsible for giving meaningful input in terms of product range, customer support and product marketing. The research project consisted out of three parts: identifying and recruiting ambassadors, designing the proper tools for them to use and designing the underlying algorithms and machine learning technology. I reached all these objectives, making this project a success. * Institute for the Promotion of Innovation by Science and Technology in Flanders
