Andy is a serial entrepreneur in the high tech and creative industries. Noticing the lack of early-stage ‘risk’ capital available for start-ups in Western Europe, Andy founded LUMO labs in 2016.
LUMO Labs is an impact-driven seed capital fund with a 2-year venture builder program for founding teams of ventures focused on AI/Data, Blockchain, Robotics/Drones, IoT and VR/AR.
In 2020 LUMO Labs announced its € 20 million LUMO fund II.
Andy believes that emerging technologies hold the key to solving the global social challenges that people face today. LUMO Labs focuses on startups that touch with their products on the following UN SDG’s: Sustainable cities & Communities, Health & Well-being, and Quality Education.
Andy divides his time between the Eindhoven (The Netherlands) and Los Angeles (USA) where the first two LUMO Labs are located. Andy holds a degree in Information Management from the Zuyd University of Applied Sciences (The Netherlands), and successfully completed the Master Class Technology, Strategy and Entrepreneurship at Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands).
