    Looking for new projects

    There is always time available for cool stuff

    I would like to develop myself and therefore looking for projects I can work for. Have a look at this website, or see directly what I can offer at skills-section. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or suggestions. Go directly to contact details.

  • My system

    How I work and what kind of person I am.


    With a high responsibility and trust, I work the best. I like working on my own, but are a great team player. I love the concept of "share and multiply". I have skills leading a team and take it together to the next level.

    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.


    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 the box; I think like there is no box.

    Want to be challenged

    I get bored easily. So, bring on the challenge. I love learning new things and you will have my interest quite quickly. (this might lead to a bunch of questions..)

    Down To Earth

    As a real Dutch guy, I am honest and down to earth. I like being to the point and most value the honesty of people. "Cut the bullsh*t".

    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.


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

    Immune to stress (almost)

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


    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!

    Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship

    Growth Hacker & Event management - internship (6 months)

    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.

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 hobby-business

    MC Sound

    Speakers, lights and DJ's for every party (12 years)

    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.

    ... aan de kook

    Organizing walking diners in cities and villages (3 years)

    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.

    Aston Justus, Channel Intern at BCN3D


    I've had the pleasure of working together in the channel team. Marvin teached me not only the skills of the job, but also "how to business" in general. Great guy in and outside the office. My internship exceeded all my expectations, on a personal level and a professional level. I would have never imagined having such a great "boss". Very grateful for the time we had and I feel that I became a better professional, and with lots of inspiration. Hopefully, we going to cross paths soon!



    Tomas Vit,  Managing Consultant, 3D printing at 3Dwiser


    If a leading manufacturer and a specialized distributor work together on joint marketing activities, it's great if they play the same note. Marvin was a helpful and open manager at a partner company.


    He regularly supplied us with attractive stories from the industry and behind-the-scenes experiences, but at the same time, he listened and appreciated our local sales activities that we could offer to the global channel in an interesting way later.


    It's always nice to work on a professional, yet personal level.



    Kris Verhaeverbeke, Accountmanager bij Distrinova


    I had the privilege of working with Marvin for more than a year at Ultimaker. Marvin is proactive, result oriented, and responsible, and he is always ready to put all his energy and time to get the job done.


    He has exceptional troubleshooting and analytical skills.


    A great asset to any company.



    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 years of his study of 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.


    By watching the projects and plans that Marvin produces, I can foresee 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.
