Michiel van Deursen
Entrepreneur turned investor. Focussing on plant-based businesses.
Started in tech, founded 2dehands.be and 2ememain.be, the market leading classified ads websites in Belgium (acquired by eBay in 2013). Founded several other successful companies, including an Amsterdam based internet agency and a tech incubator. After successfully growing and selling these companies Michiel trained for and completed an Ironman. This enhanced his passion for plant based, healthy living, and the impact this has on the planet. Since this experience, Michiel has been following his passion and has become an experienced vegan investor. As an early investor of The Vegetarian Butcher (acquired by Unilever in 2018) Michiel experienced the massive growth of the plant based food space from up close.
Michiel is currently investing in solely plant-based companies who focus on materials, health and food. Companies that are transforming the world to one that is more sustainable by eliminating animals from the production system. Travelling and training while helping people realise their dreams.
