Nalden about Ronald about Hans.

I’m an 80’s kid born as Ronald Hans, nick-named Nalden. I dropped out of college to pursue my interests in technology, design and music. I’m in this loop to learn, un-learn & re-learn

Things started rolling when I built my first website at the age of 13. Which turned into blogging and went on for over a decade. It was my way of connecting, supporting, sharing & helping others. In 2002 I introduced wallpaper advertising to promote artists & brands, which allowed me to do this blog thing full-time.

The blog made me more entrepreneurial which continued at WeTransfer, the company I co-founded in 2009. WeTransfer is all about enabling people to share and support creatives whose work we admire. You can read the stories behind the wallpapers at WePresent. Today I’m still actively involved in the company innovating on new and existing products.

Next to creating or investing in companies, I joined the supervisory board of the Stedelijk Museum. I feel very honoured to have been given this chance to be a part of the future of this amazing museum.
