While studying economics, Wouter worked at a fintech start-up on solutions for digitising shares. His love for start-ups and scale-ups was born. Soon after Wouter started his own company, Sharefunders. Wouter saw the inequality of opportunity for innovative companies with limited access to capital. With a group of professionals specialised in the art of sharefunding, employee participation, exits, participations and everything in between, Sharefunders guides and advises start-ups and scale-ups on raising growth capital. Customers, suppliers, partners and co-workers become co-owners of the company: community-owned sharefunding.
