As an entrepreneur he likes to take initiative and explore the new. From a service perspective he believes he and his team should help clients understand their growth potential and act with ambition. Inspiring Growth.

Some thoughts on business in future His vision in business is the rise of the business development platform in which growth opportunities are optimally explored and exploited in a cooperative way. The world is becoming more and more open. New roles are developed from management of individuals and intellectual property to facilitation of networks. Expertise and ideas come from a cross-industry arena. It is about the external organization and internal mentality. The art of knowing what to wish for has never been so crucial. The courage of taking steps will remain the main differentiator. And yes. We will not only believe but also more and more act as if we are responsible of this earth. Co-eco-nomy.

Looking back

  • Marketing planning and research projects
  • Co-founder of boutique business development advisory firm Geniepark
  • Creator of business concepts and formats e.g. Techcrossing and Innovation Playground
  • Co-founder of Crosspring

During that time he was active on numerous business plan panels as a judge, including NewVenture and held a multi year chairman position on the Dutch government supported TechnoPartner Award jury. Speaking, soundboard and teaching requests grew. You could say the field of commercial feasibility, business case assessment, business concepting is his area of expertise.

His life’s journey in short Jake Jacques Blok was born on Curacao (N.A.), spent some time in Canada and has been living in The Netherlands for the last couple of years. Currently, he is based in Amsterdam, which he does see as home. And it is a great hub, when active in an internationally oriented line of work.

Personal motto Keep on Tryin’. Better to try all things and to find all empty, than to try nothing and leave life a blank. It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something! (Harry Emerson Fosdick & Franklin D. Roosevelt).
