About Aad
Solutions that support overhead and management are very, very boring. The most interesting problems are those of the people delivering the real value. So, when Aad stumbled upon self-organization he found his natural way of organizing. He now helps companies to do away with hierarchy and focus on the interactions between staff, customers and suppliers that create the real value.

His activities in Almende focus on incubating new start-ups that are based on current research or previous inventions. Focus areas are machine learning, energy technology and logistics, all based on the principles of self-organization.
