Corne joined INKEF May 1, 2015 and focuses on early stage investing in the areas of enterprise SaaS & financial technology. He has 7 years of investment experience in technology. Prior to INKEF, Corne was a VP at HPE Growth Capital, a late stage growth fund where he looked at both B2B as well as B2C business models in the areas of fintech, applied materials and enterprise software. Before joining HPE, Corne worked in the London based Technology Coverage teams of Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse First Boston, both in London where he executed several M&A transactions and IPOs. He holds a BSc in Finance from Reims Management School and a MSc. degree in Financial Management from the Nyenrode, Netherlands. When not working with start-up companies you might find Corne on the beach playing beach volleyball (though he admits there are better countries for this particular pastime), in the kitchen cooking, spending time with his family or reading up on technology trends. Prior to his career in technology he actually worked as a roady for several years, but that’s a different story.
