Today we’re welcoming Johan van Mil, co-founder and managing partner of Peak to The European VC 😍 Johan is a life-long entrepreneur, who has built, bought, and sold over 11 companies, from data marketplaces and social marketing software, to email marketing platforms, and more. Making the move from founder to investor, Johan founded Peak with 5 fellow entrepreneurs in 2008, which now invests in fast growing marketplace, platforms and SaaS companies.
And what we REALLY love, their LP base is all operators putting their money to work to change the world – absolutely amazing 💕😍
In this episode you’ll learn:
– All about Johan and Peak’s journey from their first fund to today.
– How Johan thinks about brand building in VC (and they’re great at this! So pay attention! 👀)
– What’s behind the quote “Don’t try to please everybody, look for alternative ways to get things done, give 100% on one big goal – and do not move on before it is done.”
– Why Johan and Peak have chosen to build an LP base of operators and founders, what value that brings and how they use them to deliver value to founders
