BW Ventures started in June 2016 with our two founders, Maarten van Kroonenburg and Stephan Botz. Their big mission is to fix this broken startup ecosystem and help early stage startups to validate or invalidate their assumptions and startup ideas. Within the first year, this company grew to 16 people, all with different talents and ambitions. Partially, the team was expanded by acquiring a company called VisionEars which helps their clients and our startups with online marketing and web development. With this great team and set of skills, we are able to develop whatever and whenever we want.
