Nick’s link with Marktlink
“I got the entrepreneurial bug from home. My father had his own business in the surface treatment of metals. The passion for entrepreneurship was further developed during my studies in Business Administration MER in Amsterdam. During my studies I first became acquainted with the theories about the world of mergers and acquisitions. When my father passed away at the beginning of 2013, a few years later, in 2015, I went through a real-life acquisition process myself. This trajectory has always stayed with me and formed the basis for further interest in this fascinating world. I got to know Marktlink during an event at the University of Amsterdam where I was studying for my Master in Business Administration. Marktlink focuses on entrepreneurs in small and medium-sized businesses, such as the many inspiring family businesses, and guides them throughout the entire process. Guiding and supporting these trajectories is obviously a wonderful adventure!
