Hey, I’m Charlotte.
I’m a 24-year-old Dutchie living in Amsterdam. I have too many interests. But entrepreneurship is definitely one of the things I like best. I’m in love with storytelling-driven marketing, to gain audience for things that matter.
(I’m still working on the translation of this page in my spare time. Do you see room for improvements or did you spot any mistakes? Great! Let me know.)
That is why I love social entrepreneurship. Not as a goal itself, but as a powerful tool in order to create positive impact.
I don’t aim at driving a super expensive lease car within three years (been there done that), instead I’m looking at how to invest in sustainable solutions. How to do well. Improving this wonderful planet that we live on fascinates me, or assisting people who are seen as outcasts of today’s society. I’m always looking for ways to improve connections between people.
Together with my friend Jan Wolsheimer I directed a small documentary about two Dutch people in the south of Spain. A few years before that time, they had started a shelter for homeless people. With the documentary we raised 27.000 euros. Enough to pay their rent for the next five years.
Gelukkiger van Geven
At the beginning of 2017 I assisted Jan Wolsheimer (somehow he always shows up) with starting ‘Gelukkiger van Geven’ (Happier through Giving) – a website that crowdfunds for people who are in need of assistance, one way or another. In less than a year, we’d already raised over € 50.000.
Creative brainstorming abroad
Also quite a highlight. In March 2017 I went to Spain with a nice client Priscilla Vreugdenhil to mastermind a new service: career-coaching in Spain. I helped Priscilla with the content, branding and marketing. A few months after our trip she went to Spain again, this time with her first client!
Well, that’s enough for now. If you’d like to know more, then by all means, ask me!
In 2015, I travelled as a digital nomad through Spain and Portugal for eight months. I worked remotely for Dutch clients.
After eleven years of entrepreneurship and building the coolest websites in town, I wanted to go a bit more in-depth. Therefore, I am now in the first year of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam. Next to my studies, I still take on various interesting projects, just to make sure I can make my mum proud by eating healthy instead of student fastfood.
