Having founded e/d/t Global, an independent organization built to facilitate the pioneers in emerging tech, and working as a partner at Keadyn, a Dutch-based seed/early stage venture investment company and B2B enterprise-focused fund, Ton has assumed the role of 01Ventures’ CEO. We reached out to Ton to ask him about the investment philosophy of 01Ventures and how he fits into the new role.
