Noortje van Heijst
As a young professional in the energy sector, Noortje has high affinity with innovation and startups. Noortje is graduating from the Master Global Business and Sustainability at Erasmus University. Her work for Energy Investment Management BV is diverse and ranges from financial due diligence analysis of solar-, wind- and bioenergy projects, advising clean-tech startups, involvement in the Dutch Clean-tech Challenge and the Indonesian Energy Innovation Challenge.
Renewable energy startups have difficulties securing funding to commercialize their ideas. In order to contribute to closing of this funding gap, she is conducting research into the investment decision-making processes of venture capitalists, business angels and strategic investors in renewable energy startups. Insights will give the industry hands-on information on the investment strategies of these investors.
Noortje has extended experience in the startup industry at Get in the Ring (a global pitching competition for startups), Unknown Group (a technology scouting company) and Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship. Noortje is enthusiastic, driven and motivated to contribute to a sustainable future.
