the key to a life well lived, and a startup well built
The path towards long-term success, and thriving as a human being, is to first and foremost optimise for our own internal growth and strength. For startup founders this is particularly important, since we operate under extreme uncertainty and have to pull off a feat that is incredibly difficult.
Hi, I'm Martin
After 20+ years as a serial entrepreneur, ecosystem builder, startup investor, innovation leader, and bestselling author, I have decided to dedicate myself to the success of others.
The journey I've been on includes: co-founder of Rainmaking, where we've raised 20+ million EUR for our own startups; co-founder of Startupbootcamp Global, which has assisted 800+ startups to raise 700+ million EUR; co-founder and CEO of Able, with 20+ million EUR in annual revenue; co-founder of BetterNow, which has raised 15 million EUR for charities; co-founder of TechBBQ; business development manager at Meyers; and management consultant at McKinsey & Co.
Whatever you're going through, chances are, I've been there. If you are a startup founder, I'm here for you.

He helped me see my purpose and offered me tools to bring positive change into my life, and to those around me. I can truly say that every session with Martin left me more inspired, and his advice guides me everyday.

"Martin has helped me look inwards and find the solutions in myself. My pattern has been to seek the answers from someone else, and he made me aware that some questions only I can answer. Through his coaching I have gained the strength to unleash my inner potential to a much larger extent. This has made me a much better leader. I am now more able to empower my fantastic team, and they in turn unfold and grow faster than before. This has already created tangible results for our work and improved my job satisfaction. In addition, Martin helped me to work on my shadow sides, take more responsibility, and to commit to self improvement in a constructive way."
