Pleased to meet you!
Martijn is a Corporate innovation professional, and rightfully so. He’s curious and has dedicated himself for 8 years to innovation at ING. He collaborated with small and large organizations and learned from the most valuable startups. Jokingly, we used to say in the early days of Grow a Pair: Reinout comes with great ideas, Martijn makes sure that they are realized. A razor-sharp combination.
Reinout de Kraker
After a study in Delft (Delft University of Technology), Swiss job and New York internship, he designed and executed an innovative service at Achmea health insurer. 200 overweight people lost > 10 kilos (22 lbs). The service was viable through the healthcare consumption being reduced as a result of the weight loss. He started a foundation that allowed refugees to stay with families in the Netherlands. Unexpected quote? Bad and even criminal behavior is due to poorly designed services. There's work to be done!
Claartje is a conceptual product developer and innovator. In addition to the development of innovative digital product concepts at large publishing houses, among other things, she has also designed and implemented new (production) processes.
As director of ProtoSpace, she made ingrained patterns visible in organizations as barriers to successful innovation. And she brings a bit of peace to the henhouse that is Grow a Pair.
