Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten

Boris is an Internet Entrepreneur and for the past decade he has been running TNW (The Next Web), as its founder and CEO.

He started his first company in 1997 and sold it in 1999 to Fortunecity. His second company was the first Wi-Fi hotspot operator in The Netherlands which they sold to Royal KPN in 2003. It was soon rebranded to KPN Hotspots and you can still use it today and see the logo he designed on a napkin in 2002. A lot of my time is spent on keeping up with trends in digital technology.
