Nalden about Ronald about Hans.

I’m an eighties kid, born as Ronald Hans, nick-named Nalden. I dropped out of college to pursue my interests in web-technologies, 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, sharing and helping others. Although I’m not a designer nor developer, I always love to work with smart people to foster creativity and solve problems.

Today I’m leading product innovation at WeTransfer, the company I co-founded in 2009. In addition to starting companies, I sometimes invest in others. Mostly people-focused, design-driven products built by someone I admire.
