It is often difficult for corporates to experiment, learn and iterate at a high pace. As a result, innovation projects underperform. My goal is to help your business innovate more effectively. How?

TESTIMONIALS

Growth hacking

“Tom heeft bij Geldvinder een mooie rol gespeeld in de doorontwikkeling van het platform. In eerste instantie vanuit klantcontact, later ook via duidelijke doorvertaling van klantfeedback naar product en (growth) marketing. Hij is pro-actief, is eager-to-learn en heeft een ‘can-do’ mentaliteit. Ik zou zeker nogmaals met Tom willen werken op vergelijkbare projecten.”

Jeroen Pennings, Independent Digital Consultant/Project Manager
