“I’m a 26-year-old entrepreneur from Amsterdam and the founder of Fanly, a platform for local and franchise retail entrepreneurs. Fanly helps retailers to set up a loyalty programme to start, strengthen and maintain relationships with customers. It enables these local retailers to create similar loyalty programmes as the big players in the market, such as Starbucks, Vodafone and Bijenkorf [a Dutch department store].

After studying at Nyenrode New Business School I gained work experience in sales and advertising. My last job was as a strategist at an advertisement agency. I was closely involved in campaigns for clients such as KLM, Air Ziggo, Flying Blue and Airmiles. After gaining this experience, I decided to start Fanly in 2014″.
