I studied… PPLE (Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics). Economics major.
I consider myself successful with ASIF Ventures when… Bas actually shows up to the office at 9am sharp.
My favorite startup is… Opendoor. Its a US startup that's bringing the process of selling and buying houses in to 21st century, and -- unlike many older proptech startups -- actually holds the houses on its balance sheet during the sales process. On the one hand, this means that Opendoor takes much more risk compared to online portals that aggregate listings or help buyers find suitable agents. At the same time, this also makes it a much more complex and interesting business. Who knows whether it'll work in the long run...
My guilty pleasure song is… Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield (here)
