Hendrik van Gent says goodbye as director of BiD Network


After three years as a director, Hendrik is leaving BiD Network. Under his leadership, BiD Network extended their focus from program management to an improved service-offering to entrepreneurs and investors. He also facilitated the spin-off of the online platform bidX and the investment fund iungo capital. The supervisory board and BiD Network’s staff are grateful for Hendrik’s engagement and the effort he put into building the foundation for BiD Network’s future.

Hendrik will set up a new venture, which focuses on employment generation in the Netherlands.

Laura Smeets, Marens Beckers and Gert van Veldhuisen will form the new management. Together they have the ideal network and experience to serve entrepreneurs and investors.

We wish Hendrik the best of luck!
