“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
After her Bachelor’s degree in Management in Healthcare, Nina worked as Assistant Manager in a Mental Hospital and as a recruiter and consultant in Healthcare. After 3 years of working, she decided that Healthcare was potentially not my field, there was a glass ceiling with regards to her position back then.
“I couldn’t go through. I played with the thoughts to go back to study a MBA, but wasn’t really looking forward to be studying full time again.” When her brother, Floris, called her during her Holidays in Bali, telling her he got accepted for a Business Accelerator (Startupbootcamp HighTechXL) and that he was looking for someone to help him setting up his own company, she didn’t doubt for a second, and jumped in. In 4 weeks Nina quit her job and together with her brother and father founded byFlow.
This year, Nina won the Techionista Award for being the best female Tech Entrepreneur. Next to all these responsibilities she is very proud to be a speaker at the Food Inspiration Days, sharing her vision on Personal Nutrition and how Food Printing could potentially help with that.
Next to her busy working life Nina loves enjoying wines with her friends and exploring new cocktail bars in different cities that she visits with her boyfriend.
“Simon Sinek hits the spot here. Chemicals in our body, the food we eat, it all relates to what kind of person we are, and we can change it a bit, to become the person that we want to be.”
“The first time I met Jan Smink, he printed a vase in butter I had seen already for a million times. But his face was precious, so excited, so amazed! Always when I think back to it, it gives a smile on my face, and makes me want to work harder! And…. It’s now my favorite vase!”
