Erwin Tollenaere

After a career of 20 years in business, always at the intersection of business and technology, Erwin has been guiding companies through complex transformation projects on a self-employed basis for the last 5 years.

He draws on his experience in complex retail, logistics and manufacturing companies. He also spent some ten years in management roles at suppliers of business software: building and marketing complex, business-critical software solutions is familiar territory.

He has a keen interest in innovative concepts that have a direct operational and tangible impact.

Why did Erwin become a mentor at Birdhouse? Because he believes start-ups are the growth engine of our economy, and because he enjoys the mix of young, dynamic companies and an experienced network of fellow mentors.

What is Erwin looking for in a startup? Drive, eagerness to make an impact and grinta!
