We’re really excited to announce that RetroEpic Software has been chosen as one of the companies taking part in the #cocreate2ACCELERATE
challenge. An initiative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, RetroEpic was identified as one of 5 high-potential startups to be partnered with a Dutch entrepreneur to exchange ideas and innovations for a sustainable future.
After submitting our challenge to the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands – a challenge to provide business insights and guidance while embracing our completely flat structure of management here at RetroEpic – we were thrilled to be accepted and paired with a Dutch digital nomad. Esther Jacobs joins us on the 10th of August and we couldn’t be more excited to find out how she embraces the challenge we have set for her.
From her website:
As a pioneer and entrepreneur Esther became an expert in getting results with limited resources. The “No Excuses Lady” proves that you can turn even the bleakest situation into an opportunity:
- Raised $25 million for charities without a budget, network or experience. Got knighted by the Dutch Queen.
- Survived a reality TV show on a deserted island.
- Turned her relationship with a playboy into a bestselling book: ‘Have you found your Mr Wrong yet?‘
- Got ‘fired’ from her country for traveling too much; became a digital nomad, living and working in 100+ countries. The very government that expelled her, is now consulting her on how to solve this issue for future mobile generations.
#cocreate2Accelerate functions as a stepping stone for those who want to get involved in the many success stories that Cape Town has to offer. Several high-potential local startups are missing the right support to be able to expand their boundaries and accelerate their business. Our goal is to bring Dutch and South African counterparts together; for them to cocreate solutions to local business challenges while establishing fruitful partnerships to mutually benefit their professional endeavors.
