Digitale innovatie en creatie van oplossingen
Welcome, my name is Patrick Krijnen
My experiences and knowledge: Innovation and creation, finding solutions to complex problems / situations. That is my passion in combination with entrepreneurship. I started my own company when I was 18. I had previously gained experience in all kinds of companies. As a 9 year old I was active as a computer repairman. Around my 10th birthday I did camera and editing work for several TV channels. Briefly described, my passion for entrepreneurship was developing at a young age. After I grew from just me to a company with several employees in a short period of time. Did I go searching, what do I want now. Then I ended up in international entrepreneurship. Here I have carried out several ICT, IT, programming management and other related assignments. Then I came into contact with an American. In the first face, we only built a website from within the company. After this he had a problem for a software solution. An MT swift transaction and registration system. This was then properly made in a very short period of time. After satisfaction I was asked to start as an interim Marketing Director for his company. After fulfilling this position and some unexpected accomplishments later, I was promoted to CTO. This took some getting used to, of course, but fortunately I had also performed above expectations and I was again promoted to Vice President. All my life I have been building and developing. The funny thing is that I only have an MBO level 1 diploma. I have studied a lot over the years and I still do that every day. Unfortunately, I don’t fit in with everyone because of that. Are you looking for a stereotype? Then you have not come to the right place! Are you looking for a solution-oriented, experienced, cooperative & out of the box thinking entrepreneur? Then you’ve come to the right place. Why did I become an entrepreneur: This has several reasons. My parents are entrepreneurs and so I got it as a child. In many cases this was the guiding principle for me in my decision to start an entrepreneur. From my 15th to my 17th I worked full-time as a Welder, in the steel structures. When I was 17 I came to the hospital with heart problems. This was unexpected and when I found out it was said. You have 3 months to live, or you need surgery with a 25% survival rate. This has changed a lot. In my life, but me in my personality. At this point I was declared unfit to practice the only profession for which I had a degree. The problem was not that I could not do anything, but that I cannot demonstrate it in regular ways. My father has always been, but then again “As an employee they ask for your diploma, as an entrepreneur about you.” With this in mind, the experiences and knowledge I had gained. Had I decided to work / do an internship for a company. I have done this at several companies. Subsequently, I made the decision to start an entrepreneur. I registered on 01-07-2015.
