Do. Or do not. There is no try.
Adriaan is a Dutch tech entrepreneur and investor. He founded Mollie in 2004 as an 18-year old engineer, and later co-founded MessageBird. Adriaan used his product-first approach and successful implementation of technology to modernize an old infrastructure and make it simpler and easier to use.
Adriaan is currently supporting Mollie’s management team on product and company strategy. He also backs innovative start-ups that match his interests in technology, communication, and financial services.
Adriaan finds inspiration everywhere – from nature to the cities of the world. He loves Star Wars and Sci-Fi as much as a perfectly blended cocktail, art, music, and the power of 1s and 0s. He is passionate about the next great idea, cool new technology, and the potential to improve on already-existing solutions. Adriaan started his companies because he imagined a world where technology and creativity could flourish.
