What is your personal USP?

"Great perseverance, broad interest and dedication.

What can the older generation of entrepreneurs learn from you?

"A fresh look in an otherwise dusty field. And that expertise from other disciplines is needed to bring about change."

Who is your mentor or source of inspiration in the field of entrepreneurship?

“I don't have a single source of inspiration, but there are different people who inspire me in different areas. So it has Leonardo da Vinci inspired me from an early age that it is possible to excel in different disciplines. I also have a lot of admiration for entrepreneurs who have founded not one, but several successful companies, such as Richard Branson and Elon Musk, but also the Dutch Adriaan Mol and Robert Vis.''

What is your motto or quote?

"Nothing is impossible if you work hard enough for it.''

What is the biggest entrepreneurial risk you have taken so far?

“The biggest risk I took was the decision to develop our own software. This required a major investment in time and money and it was not a given in advance that this would be a successful step, even though I was convinced of this myself. Fortunately, afterwards it turned out that it was a good thing that we took a risk, because it certainly paid off and is one of the important areas in which we distinguish ourselves from the competition."

Where will you be in 3 years?

“In 3 years, Nova Group will be a household name in terms of getting every invoice paid. If a company no longer wants to worry about getting invoices paid, they should immediately think of Nova Group. In addition, we want to employ 250 people and have a turnover of 150 million euros.''Do you know or are you a successful, young entrepreneur who also deserves a place in the spotlight?
