I am a(n):

First-time entrepreneur

If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I want to change the world.

My favorite startups:

Zeebox, Viggle

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Chicken and Egg problem. Everybody hates you, but when there is traction everybody want's to be your friend.
Most rewarding: focus on what I really want to achieve, build up a company from scratch in a market that will become huge. I believe !

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

Don't learn from mistakes

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

Keep following your dream
Stay focussed
Learn your finacials

Who has any trust in current TV net ratings?

Ok, the model is from 1950 and later on, but the world has changed...
More channels, different lineair TV, streaming tv, social rating and more.
But how can we really measure the audience mood and emotions continuesly? Imagine there is a platform that collects all the live audience traffic and emotions..... YEL - Your Emotion Live is part of this answer.

Full bio

Love mobile technology. As a web entrepeneur I was to busy using the web on the first internet bubble early double 00's (2001), so I wasn't ready to setup things like Yahoo, PayPal or Twitter.
Now with the second internet wave, ready to outperform on mobile phone / social media / web technology and connected TV/SocialTV. 
So that's where YEL is coming from, and why it is created now. It brings all my 3 jobs together. Business Intelligence, Market Research & Mobile / Webtechnology. 

Personal Goals (Big 5)
- keep having fun
- use newest technology
- facilitate brilliant development teams
- take responsibility
