On the question ‘’What does the perfect startup team look like for you?’’ Nina said: ‘’Diverse, with different backgrounds, but with a common goal and mindset. You need to want to make an impact, and while doing so you accept that these things take time, hard work and high risks. In the end teamwork makes the dream work, so always aim for better, faster, newer!’’
Co-founder of ReShore
The second guest of RISE NL that we are announcing: Frej Gustafsson! Frej is a 24-year-old entrepreneur and co-founder of the startup ReShore.
‘’ReShore is building the Living Breakwater, creating the next generation of environmentally sustainable coastal protection.’’
‘’I’ve been involved in the Wageningen University startup scene since I first started my Master’s in 2018, learning a ton of new things along the way. When I was asked if I wanted to participate in a panel discussion organized by Rise NL, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to give back to the community that I have learned so much from.’’
Why Frej is considered the Hipster of the startup: ‘’I work in the intersection between science and business, trying to bring the vision from science into the world of business. I’m neither an expert in the details nor a businessperson, but instead, I sit comfortably between the two – maintaining the bigger picture and making a sure impact is central to the business that I’m a part of.’’
Founder of ROCKNROO
Another guest we are announcing is Priyanka Harish! Priyanka is the 26-year-old Founder & Chief Technology Officer of her startup Rocknroo. She is interested in speaking at RISE NL to share her entrepreneurial journey as a freshly graduated student. 💥
Rocknroo is a smart baby pillow to calm inconsolable crying in babies by emulating the features of parental Kangaroo care; therefore providing parents a break to get that cup of coffee, write that email or catch a quick nap! 🧑🏽🍼🍼
Priyanka is considered the Hacker at Rocknroo because: ‘’I designed and developed the first working prototype and also validated the concept with parents and babies.’’ ⚡️
‘’For me, a perfect startup team is a team that shares the same vision. A team where everyone works towards achieving the best for the startup, despite adversities.’’ 🚀
