About Marc Wesselink and the interesting investments or business verticals for 2023
This week on the pod we have an expert masterclass with one of the smartest, most venture-savvy men in Europe, Marc Wesslink. Marc is a serial entrepreneur who has started 12 companies and failed four times. He has been actively building and investing in companies since 1994.
The experience he has gathered over the years of building a London Stock Exchange-listed company, managing multiple venture funds of millions of euros, and founding and selling many successful businesses, makes him, in my opinion, one of the best in the venture business.
Marc is daringly on a mission to reinvent venture capital with his latest business Venture Rock, his investment vehicle that gives investors a digital way of investing in companies from seed to series.
