Tell us about yourself?
Entrepreneur, Developer and Big Data Expert, more than 20 years experience. Operating at the crossroads of sales and computer science to deliver solutions that people remember.
What do you think is the single biggest misconception people have when it comes to startups?
That a startup needs to have a strong business model. The opposite is the value, fast reaction to market conditions and present solutions to help mitigate problems when they arise. The flexibility and dedication to build something meaningful is the value.
If you could go back in time to any moment from your journey, and give yourself one tip, what would it be?
Be more patient, sometimes being just stubborn and follow your idea is the right path. Don’t take too much credit, its always the whole team which builds the product.
What makes you stand out as an entrepreneur?
I’m a new work fan, our team can and should work from places they like, where they get inspiration and power to create big ideas. I value feedback, take into account and sharpen the idea up to a product, which will create revenue – even in deep tech.
What are some of the best working habits you’ve gained over the past couple of years?
Starting at the morning with emails and news, reflect the last day and concentrate what’s in front of us. The past can’t be changed. Learn from it.
Give us a bit of an insight into the influences behind the company?

How do clients and customers find you? Are you much of a salesperson for yourself?
We support Apache Wayang (incubating) and users often come over the open source stack. We are also present in TikTok and LinkedIn, our blogs are frequently read and we participate as speaker to conferences, and of course the word of mouth help us enormously.
What one tip would you give to fellow startup founders?
Don’t let you influence from people who say they know everything better than you. Be stubborn, trust in data and market research. Building a company is a long way, take that into account, not exponential growth is the key – steadiness and a positive cash flow is.
And finally, what do you hope the future brings both you personally, and your business?
That we establish Databloom as a key player in the data market, help to solve the worlds toughest problems with the power of data, reduce emissions by not move data around, save energy and help organizations to be carbon neutral.
