"Without friction, no shine"


Entrepreneurship, successes and failures

Jelle started his career at Artevelde Hogeschool but soon decided to become an entrepreneur. After ttwo succesfull exists, he is now already investing in his third company. He started his first company company when Steve Jobs was waving around the first Iphone ever. He was triggered and believed that "that Ipod with phone function" was going to conquer the world. His company grew rapidly and after 5 years it was acquired by Cartamundi from Turnhout. Not long after that he started his second company focusing on digital healthcare and prevention. Shortly after, this company again was acquired by a family office and was baptized the name Leadlife. At leadlife, he is still active as CEO. Meanwhile, Jelle is yet again investing in his third company with a focus on conversational user interfaces. 

He will bring us his (life)lessons in entrepreneurship, this from a very honest and transparant, vulnerable way. About trial and error, working hard and crashing harder, value creation and team dynamics, about health and ambition, giving money to get to work and so much more.
