Interview with Leapfunder: Remco Janssen as Dutch Startup Changemaker

Our founder Remco Janssen was interviewed as a Dutch Startup Changemakers by Leapfunder.

Remco Janssen aka the ‘Godfather of startups’ is the first influencer in our Dutch Startup Changemakers blog series. Proudly Represents, his PR agency for high profile and rapidly growing technology companies, and Silicon Canals, his online magazine about technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation open up the Dutch startup ecosystem to the world. Find out more about his background, why he’s so attracted to the startup world and his mission to radically improve the way corporates & technology companies communicate.

“On estimate, I have probably helped around 40 startups with PR. If you count all the startups that I’ve mentored over the years, that numbers crosses the hundred-mark perhaps.

Some, like HelloprintFixicoHotelchamp, and StudyTube, bank millions in funding. Some are even acquired, like TreatwellScoupy, and earlier, 123people. Some fail or go bankrupt. PR is never going to save you from failure, still, it’s a cornerstone of a possible success. Never to be underestimated.”
