When I started to study Applied Physics at Delft University back in the year 1980, I had the desire to contribute to the development of nuclear fusion, as a solution for the World's energy, water, and ultimately food supply problems. As the expected date for commercial availability of nuclear fusion kept shifting, I scaled by ambitions down and became interested in other forms of energy, and in other more practical topics like 3D graphics and simulation. Having achieved some success in my ventures with these, I now want to go back to my original interest, and invest some of my money in promising start-up companies that have a potential to save energy or generate clean energy. Although the company is a personal investment venture, it has some experienced partners with a successful track record in areas that are relevant to start-up venturing, like entrepreneurship, chemical engineering, intellectual property (IP) protection, strategy & risk analysis. My passion is to start and nurture new companies that use opportunities offered by new technology to create create products and services that help others to improve their work and life.
