Passion for IT and Entrepreneurship
It begins with noticing opportunities. From a young age, Rutger already had a clear goal: starting his own company. His first enterprise was in the catering industry. Even though Rutger still felt a force of attraction towards the IT industry, because of its flexibility, velocity and opportunities. Rutger can focus all his energy on the design and development of websites, webshops and web applications. Knowledge and experience that is near at hand.
Within his current position, Rutger is a debating partner for clients and the Convident team. As a co-founder, Rutger is involved in the development process within Convident. For example, he regularly attends strategic sessions with clients. Besides that, together with his co-founder Rick Dreise, he is working on letting Convident grow. “To realise this growth, you need a great team”, according to Rutger. The assembly, coaching and personal development of the team give him satisfaction. “It is wonderful to see how we can take new steps as entrepreneurs, together with our team. Offering the space for personal growth has been an essential component of our business conduct since the start of our organisation.
Rutger is enthusiastic, creative and dares to speak his mind freely. “I receive energy from the discussions with entrepreneurs that want to go for it. That is how I am myself because every so often, you are allowed to take some risks.
