Starting preparations PhD on values and business models

Yes! Yesterday I have started the preparations for my PhD with prof. dr. Sharda Nandram at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Together with Vanessa Englert and Raja Kanuri, I am going on a journey into the world of academia. Next to running my companies Life Impact Company and Grit Academy.

The PhD is building on my thesis of ‘value based pricing for social entrepreneurs’. I wrote the thesis to complete my executive MBA at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in 2012. Ever since, I have been researching this topic, writing articles and participating in conferences in Liege, India and Berlin.

As an advisor at Life Impact Company I have helped many (for profit and social) enterprises build successful and profitable business models. I will now deepen my knowledge and gain more insights to help understand how values can strengthen a business model. I will keep you updated and share my articles
