Bertil van Vugt

Business Development Lead, VC4Africa

The Netherlands

Having a background in journalism and political science, I’ve combined my two interests by working at media production company Africa Interactive from 2006 to 2014. In 2012 – 2014 I lived in Nairobi, Kenya, where I have successfully set up a subsidiary branch in one of Africa’s most important hubs.

In July 2014 I joined VC4Africa. I’ve been always passionate about supporting starting entrepreneurs in Africa to realize impact in countries with enormous unemployment rates among their young populations. At VC4Africa I am responsible for business development.
