Marco is a passionate, high energy and imaginative investor with a large international contact capital and 20+ years experience in investing his private funds in early growth businesses and scale-ups.
Educated in the Netherlands, Spain, Germany and the US, Marco started his business career with Merrill Lynch in the early 90’s spearheading a completely new business in Eastern and Central Europe. In 1996 Marco embarked on a new career as an entrepreneur in the UK. Together with his business partner Paul Daniels, they built 7 businesses from scratch. In 2010, with 6 successful exits to his name – including one to a Private Equity buyer – Marco and Paul formed Involved investors and together they invested in 9 early growth companies. 4 successful exits later – including one IPO – Marco teamed up with Tom and formed Slingshot in 2014 to invest in early growth ventures in the Netherlands. Just like his role in Involved investors, Marco likes to take a hands-on approach assisting talented entrepreneurs where they need it most.
Working with entrepreneurs and inspiring them realise their big dreams.
