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 tech, design and music. Now I’m trapped in an infinite loop to learn, un-learn & re-learn.
It all started when I built my first website. Which turned into blogging and went on for over a decade. It was my way of connecting, supporting, sharing and helping others.
Today I’m leading product innovation at WeTransfer, the company I co-founded in 2009. With WeTransfer we’ve always given back to the creative industries, to promote creatives whose work we love. See the stories behind the beautiful imagery here: WePresent.
I’m also managing Louis Bordeaux providing guidance and expertise to help bring a vision to life.
Next to creating companies, I sometimes invest in others.
