Jacob Schaap

Former Diplomat/Consultant who switched back to entrepreneurship after 4 years in the Middle East.

During my professional career I have worked both in the public and private sector. After developing and eventually selling  my event organizing business I decided it was time to "give back". I switched to a career in the public domain only to realize this was not for me. After 4 years working for the Dutch government and the United Nations in the Middle East I decided it was time for a change again. I am currently building a sports/lifestyle brand in New York and I love to be back in the entrepreneurship modus! I can offer advice for people who looking to switch careers or who are entrepreneurs themselves!
