Join Suzanne as co-founder with an interest in B2C software applications that transform the way we live

Hi! 

Let me introduce myself before telling you about all the reasons you should apply. My name is Suzanne Snel, I am 25 years old, I have a background in communication & marketing and it is my dream to start a business that helps consumers/professionals to get the most out of life by making better choices, increasing their productivity or making the necessary more fun. I am part of Holland Startup, an organization that helps me to achieve this and I am already researching multiple fields of interest. There is only one piece of the puzzle still missing… you! 

I am looking for a cofounder. Or rather, I am looking for a partner; someone to exchange thoughts and make decisions with. I would describe myself as flexible and creative, so I am ideally looking for someone who is more goal-oriented and decisive to complement me. 

My goal is to always keep learning and developing myself. Holland Startup enables me to do that, by guiding me in the process of entrepreneurship but at the same time giving full ownership about the actions, direction and mistakes I make (to optimally learn from them). Additionally, I’d love to start a company that makes an impact. It doesn’t need to be life-changing, and of course there needs to be a solid business model too. Directions I am currently thinking about are marketplaces or applications that help consumers or professionals to get the most out of life by making better choices, increasing their productivity or making the necessary more fun.
