David has been involved in entrepreneurial ventures and investments from a young age. Before studying for a degree in Corporate Finance and Entrepreneurship at the University of Groningen, he set up a car washing service that was closed down by his parents when one of his friends working on the venture crashed a customer’s car. Since then, he has become involved in many successful ventures including Light as a Service, which has revolutionised the traditional lighting industry. Along the way, David also built a successful career over four years as an investment banker at Kempen & Co. He decided to move to Seedrs in 2016, when looking for a new and exciting industry to work in and saw crowdfunding as his next business opportunity.
