Jan Scheele

Jan Scheele –  The Netherlands

Started my first company when I was 13 and also started my first company, making websites. During high school and my studies at Maastricht University, I grew several companies at the intersection of digital communications, events and consulting. With a broad portfolio of projects on national and international scale, for clients varying from governments and multinationals to non-profits and startups.
In my free time, I’ve organized 50+ TEDx events globally, from Maastricht to Amsterdam, Baghdad to New York and for organizations like the UN and CERN. Furthermore I’m currently actively engaged in several startups as founder / shareholder (property / e-commerce) and speak often at conferences on a variety of topics.
In my free time I’m active in several boards and for the World Economic Forum.
