    The Next Web

    Business Developer

    Founded in 2006, The Next Web is one of the world’s largest online publications that delivers an international perspective on the latest news about Internet technology, business and culture. With an active, influential audience consisting of more than 7.2 million monthly visits and 9.5 million monthly page views, The Next Web continues to expand its global presence on its website with the addition of new channels and content partnerships, as well as through events in North America and Europe.

     

    I was mainly responsible for the sales inbound, screening the new advertisement and partnership inquiries and the development of this process. I was also responsible for finding new strategic leads for future partnerships, using a variety of tools. Besides that, I did some side-tasks for the TNW 2016 Conference, like developing the sales booth and organizing a partnership dinner. (on a boat through the canals of Amsterdam!)

    Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship

    Growth Hacker

    Part of ECE was: Get in the Ring is the Olympics for Startups; a worldwide competition where startups face off against each other in one-on-one pitching battles.

     

    In 2014 over 2,000 startups competed in GITR, known by its fans as “the Olympics for startups.” Through national selection rounds in over 64 countries and finals in each region of the world, the 8 most promising startups came together in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Four Champion investors and an audience of business angels, VC’s, entrepreneurs, and captains of industry, decided which startup will win the title of World Champion, taking home the coveted championship belt – and hopefully an investment.

     

    Since 2009, over 10,000 startups have participated in GITR, and takes part in over 100 countries nowadays. GITR has also been a winner, capturing international awards such as the European Enterprise Promotion Awards for supporting the internationalisation of business.

     

    I was responsible for the following tasks while organizing the International Final: app development (for info and voting), logistics (over 20+ partners), controlling design team and instruct volunteers. Besides these tasks, I was also (co-)responsible for the general and overall Social Media, SEO, website optimization and business development for the GITR competition itself.

    My BBA-degree

    Bachelor of Business Administration,

    International Event, Music and Entertainment Studies

    We were trained to become marketing professionals specialized in selling creative concepts for the event, music and entertainment industries. We learned to analyze, calculate and create ever refreshing, innovative marketing campaigns and how best to market a product or service from creative sectors.

     

    I was chairman of the student fraction at the representative advisory board. It is an honor to represent 2200 students at the RAB of the academy. I think it is important, because, in the meetings of the RAB with the principal, agreements are made with regards to general policy, strategy, personnel policy, accommodation, student policy and developments in the area of education. It is very interesting to do!

     

    Subjects: project management, economics, concepting, communication, media design, law, research, (online) marketing, strategic marketing, writing.

    Minor Abroad Norway

    Sports Psychology and Snow Business

    For 6 months in Lillehammer, Norway

    This amazing experience, I will never forget. It was incredible and I felt in love with the amazing country. I followed these courses:

     

    Sports Psychology

    The course in Sports Psychology offers a general introduction to the growing field of sport and exercise psychology. Students will gain an understanding of how psychological factors influence performance and exercise for groups and individuals, and how these processes and factors are influenced by the participants’ experiences within their sports. Students will gain an in-depth understanding on how emotion, arousal, stress and regulatory behaviors influence people's behaviors within the sports realm.

    Snow Business
    Snow Business offers students an introduction to the winter sports business environment. The teaching approach is through lectures, site visits and studying cutting-edge research within the field. The aim is that students should acquire knowledge about development of destinations, customer service, marketing and human resource development within winter sports activities.

    My hobby-business

    MC Sound

    Speakers, lights and DJ's for every party

    It started as a great idea together with a good friend of mine at the age of 14. We were two young boys who wanted to become the new Tiesto and Armin van Buuren. Yes, we failed in that. But, we succeeded in having a semi-professional speakers- and light rental for consumers and businesses. We have made many unforgettable parties with our professional equipment and DJ-skills! Nowadays, the business is on hold because of limited time and other interesting things in life.

     

    High Potentials On Tour

    HOT

    Students cooperative in event organizing

    I was a proud member of this collaboration between the 20 most talented students of our Academy with a passion for event management. We had our own office and meeting place. Organizing different events and working together with other events and festivals. Really cool opportunity and an honor to be asked for this group. It is fantastic to work with these students.

     

    I was responsible for tasks like:  concepting, financial management, account management, event management, logistics, and partnerships.

    #CLUBIEMES

    Students' association

    Committee External Events

    This is the main student association at our Academy. They provide events, dinners, training, books, excursions and, of course, a great community. In the first committee, I was part of, Committee of External Events, we organized several events in collaborations with businesses and other third parties.

     

    A year later, in the second committee I took place, I was part of the organizing team for ACI Graduation Night. The biggest gala of the academy with 200+ guests.

     

    See the after movie of ACI Graduation Night 2015 here.

    ... aan de kook

    Organizing walking diners in cities and villages

    As initiator and co-organizer, I set-up this non-profit initiative that strengthens the sociability of little villages and neighborhoods. What we do: we organize an evening where people cook for each other. You have an appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert and you eat every dish at another's home. You prepare one of the dishes and people visit your house for that specific dish. Sounds fun right? It is. It started in just 1 village and is spread out now in 5 villages.

  • My system

    How I work and what kind of person I am.

    Responsible

    With a high responsibility, I work the best. I love leading a team and have the responsibility. I am a team player but I also like working independently.

    Growth Focused

    I my opinion, standing still is the same as going backwards. Competitive advantage can only be reached by being focused on growth and development.

    Creative

    With my education in concepting, storytelling, design and innovation, a 24/7 creative mindset and way of thinking is on! I don't think outside box; I think like there is no box.

    Want to be challenged

    If it is too easy, I get bored. I love learning new things and develop myself in things that got my interest.

    Down To Earth

    As a real Dutch guy, I am honest and down to earth. I like being to the point and value the honestly of people.

    Data Driven

    I am analytical and observant. With A/B-testing, collecting data and doing research, more knowledge and insights will be gained for better decision making.

    Entrepreneurial

    I am very optimistic and always looking for opportunities. "Just do it," and not afraid to fail. Failing is simply just learning.

    Immune to stress

    Trained to handle stressful and unexpected situations, combined with my calm personality, stress doesn't influence me as with most people. I kind of like the pressure even.

    Curiosity

    Change, innovation, trying and discovering new things are cool. I like to be open minded, improve and not stick too long by doing something the same way. Let's explore!

  • WHAT DO OTHERS SAY?

    References:

     

    Bram Cuijpers, Initiator HOT and director Buro-Plankgas

    Marvin is capable of asking insistent and well-considered questions but only after he has thoroughly listened, observed and analyzed the case. This makes him highly decisive and capable of giving full dedication and conviction.

     

    One of his decision was to reinforce HOT, an organization where High Potential students are engaged in the development and organizing of high-quality events. Marvin shows enthusiastic attitude and is absolutely a leader in an honest way. His ambitions and qualities are mainly aimed at the commercial market. However, Marvin is not afraid of other activities.

     

    He is a nice man to work with!

     

     

    Drs. Laura van Hinthum-Angenendt, lecturer Marketing and Sales and study coach at Fontys ACI

     

    As a study coach and teacher Marketing and Sales, I know Marvin from his first and second year of his study business administration at the Academy for Creative Industries in Tilburg as an eager to learn and critical student. He is a businessman with an eye for solutions.

     

    Marvin is open to new experiences. Because of his focus on results, he is a valuable player in a team but he can also work well independently. A learning point for Marvin is also on this level. Marvin prefers to work efficiently towards a goal, but he does not always see that road towards it, it is more instructive than the result.

     

    By watching the projects and plans that Marvin produces, I can foresee see a professional businessman who knows what the customer wants. It is not surprising to me that this pleasant and critical student is already active with business by running several projects.

     

     

    Ytje van de Hulsbeek, director Y-organize and co-organizer 'Aan de kook'
    When starting up the event “Aan de kook” I came in touch with Marvin. We have been working together on this event and exposed this in several places in The Netherlands.

     

    Marvin has a high intellect. He is very creative, what shows amongst other things in designing the website (visible- and invisible elements) and in designing PR material. Creating this, he does not miss the business touch which is so extremely important in the event business.

     

    Marvin has a personality with a positive view in life and business. He is a real go-getter with an open mind. He is an excellent team player and will not turn his back on you when complex situations occur. He is a nice person to work with and has a wonderful sense of humor.
