I am an independent innovation consultant with very strong background in software engineering. I have my own innovation and software consultancy company, which is based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The list of companies I've either provided consultancy for or worked for include Philips, Thermo Fisher Scientific, ASML, TomTom, Navigon AG and Intel GmbH. I've also won several crowdsourcing challenges . Currently I'm also promoting the crowdsourcing model to the companies in the area where I'm professionally active.
