At a certain moment you come to the age to share your knowledge. Arthur Tolsma (1980) does that a little earlier than most people, perhaps his story is so appreciated. After his intensive experiences with entrepreneurship, innovation and pitching, he is now active as a coach, trainer, speaker and presenter.
The ups and downs that have passed in the extreme in his entrepreneurial life have drawn him. In 2009, after winning the pitch competition "With us in the BV" on TV (with this pitch), 300,000 viewers saw him as a successful entrepreneur. But when he almost went bankrupt four months later, he felt himself rather a loser. After a clean-up and finally the sale of his company, he is now successful in sharing his knowledge and experience, especially after the publication of his book ‘Startups & Downs'.
