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. This is a biased summary of the past years.

Things started rolling when I built websites as a teenager. Which turned into blogging and went on for over a decade. Blogging was my way of learning, connecting, supporting, sharing & helping others. 

In 2002 I launched a new advertising model to promote artists & brands on my blog, followed by other ventures such as WeTransfer in 2009 and Present Plus in 2010.

Next to creating or investing in companies, I’m a member of the Stedelijk Museum supervisory board. 

It’s been a rollercoaster best described as the most valuable education I could get.
