Hi, I’m Sietske.
Nice to meet you!
As the Managing Director of ttopstart, I direct and control the company’s operations and give strategic guidance.
I will lead ttopstart in continued innovation, further growth and achieving its national and international ambitions. I coach the team to exceed our clients’ expectations every day of the week.
After finishing my master’s degree at the Twente University, I started my career at TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research). With more than 10 years of experience in various roles for educational publishers, I became a business development manager in the e-learning industry.
I am proud of winning a Marina van Damme scholarship, annually awarded to a successful University of Twente alumna. Marina van Damme was the first student who obtained a PhD at the former Technical University College Twente in 1965 and is an inspiring role model for women. I used the scholarship for a course at Nyenrode Business University, with a focus on excellent female leadership. I hope to encourage female talents and pave the way for the next generation of woman at the top.
I strongly believe in learning by doing and improved my general management skills as the CEO of Elevate Health, a spin-off from the University Medical Center Utrecht and Utrecht University. This scale-up offers innovative learning solutions for healthcare and life science specialists. Elevate has worked together with public-private consortia on many projects such as the Innovative Medicines Initivate, Horizon 2020, Erasmus+ and other initiatives.
With my experience, expertise and drive I will bring ttopstart to the next level. I will also remain strategic advisor to the board of PNO Group on digital transformation. I am passionately committed to use new technologies to an advantage and use our group synergy potential to inspire and connect.
“At ttopstart, we inspire each other and act as a catalyst to accelerate innovation.”
