“I've always had an entrepreneurial drive. During my internship at a freight forwarding office in 2015, I witnessed how this traditional industry had lagged behind in modernization. It saw a significant gap in the market and I was convinced it could and should be revolutionized – made more modern and digital. There's nothing more exhilarating than knowing you can make an impact in a €350 billion industry.”
"Ask our employees what they appreciate about Shypple, and they often mention the absence of ego. I'm open to arguments and love it when someone else has a better idea. I'm the first to say, 'Great, you see it better than I do; let's do it.' I believe in a laissez-faire approach. I have great trust in others and delegate a lot of responsibility.
In my view, 'not being able to let go' is a bottleneck. Many SMEs often remain at the same level because 'the person in charge' limits growth. If you believe you can do everything better yourself, you hinder growth. I don't want to be that limiting factor. So, you need people who can do things better than you can."
