The team behind Crowdfunding International

 

 

Ivo Coenen
General Manager & Co-Founder

My name is Ivo Coenen, I am one of the founders of Crowdfunding International. I am 41 years old and live with my family in the southern parts of The Netherlands (in beautiful Limburg).

I have been an entrepreneur now for over 20 years,in different industries, such as Telecom. I used to have four offices. By mid 2015 I found out about crowdfunding through an American online platform and from there developed the idea to start Crowdfunding International.

I took the step to start this platform because I was convinced crowdfunding could be done better in many and much better ways. After many hours of brainstorming with my friends, we created the CFI Team and launched our Platform in December 2015.

 

I wish all of you the best of luck and success with CFI and believe we created something great here!

Twan van der Kort
General Manager & Co-Founder

My name is Twan van der Kort and I am another founder of CF International. I am 47 years old and live with my family in the southern parts of the Netherlands. My family consists of my wife Manuela, my sons Mika and Ravi, and the youngest, my daughter Zara.

For the past 25 years I had my own business in the catering industry.

In May 2015 I found out about crowdfunding through the internet. I became curious and kept looking for more information until after days of intensive meetings with my current partners we came to the decision to start Crowdfunding International. The best decision I ever took!

 

I hope by providing this beautiful crowdfunding platform to you with my partners also you will see the strength and benefits of it. Wishing you all the best for your projects and sending my regards to you and your loved ones.

My name is Pascal Nieling and I am the youngest of the CF International founders, born in 1976. I share my life with my fantastic wife Wendy and our son Wes. I have a daughter, Naomi, and son, Dean, from a past relationship. We are a big happy family!

I started CFI together with my colleagues/friends in 2015. With this a great opportunity presented itself to help people realize their dreams and ambitions. My dream is to make CFI a great success!

 

In Team CFI we are all helping each other and provide support wherever we are needed. My role as General Manager in this brand new company is fulfilling and every day is a fantastic experience working with the team and all of our already registered and growing number of Project Managers.

 

Koen Lienaerts
IT Department

My name is Koen Lienaerts and with my 21 years I am among the youngest members of the CF International Team.

My function at CFI is Head of the IT Department. I am proudly taking the responsibility to look after the development of the platform itself. Furthermore, it is my responsibility to make sure that the IT part of CFI is functioning efficiently.

I love it when I see that a newly developed function of the platform is happily being used by our Project Managers!

 

I was chosen to be the very first employee of Crowdfunding International, and I am very happy and fortunate to have been offered such an opportunity to work in such a great company with an amazing team! I will give all it takes to be part of it for a long time to come!

 

My current study is Software and Web-Development at the University in Eindhoven (NL) and my up-to-date knowledge goes right into practical experience here at CFI.

I wish all our members a great Crowdfunding experience at Crowdfunding International!

Arno van Hove
Administrator

My name is Arno van Hove and I am among the oldest employees of Crowdfunding International.

I was born in 1967, so my age is 49 years old.

I share my life, already for a long time, with my amazing wife Ester, my son Ivo and my daughter Valerie. We enjoy as family all the beautiful moments in our live.

My conviction is “ We do it together to make things better “.

 

I made acquaintance with Crowdfunding International by an already business relationship with one of the founders.

The most important things for me to work at Crowdfunding International is that they are working according to the rules and that they work as a team for all the people who participate in the platform. When that was clear for me I made the decision to work for Crowdfunding International.

 

My role in the company is Administrator. 

With over 20 years of experience in national and international companies in the financial sector, I want to contribute to the further expansion of Crowdfunding International and devote myself to all the people within the platform.

Remains for me to give everyone a lot of pleasure and fun experience with Crowdfunding International. Remember: “We do it together to make things better”.

 

I wish you all a happy Crowdfunding.

I am a German native and spend many years working in Tourism, Direct Selling and as a Support Manager for international companies. I am a well-rounded professional with Start-up experience.

 

I joined CFI in early June 2016 as Compliance Manager and Head of the Support Department to set-up general guidelines, documentation, processes and templates for internal and external use to ensure the company develops further in these areas, is protected and all members play fairly with each other and with the company.

I am also in charge of approving and reviewing all self-created marketing material of our Project Managers, overviewing general support guidelines and I am working hand in hand with the co-founders on these topics.

 

Crowdfunding International is an equal opportunity for everyone to achieve their dream projects and next to being a fantastic idea also a way of bringing people closer together and build a great community - something very much needed in today’s world.

 

I look forward to working with all of you and supporting you in fulfilling these dreams.

Liesanne van der Naald

Hello, I am Liesanne, proud mother of three beautiful kids, living in a small village in the southern parts of the Netherlands.

 

I have been working at the Courthouse in Maastricht for more than a decade. In my sparetime I studied Interior Design and am now studying Feng Shui.

After seven years of taking care of my children, I now find great fulfilment in being part of CFI's Support Team.

 

I thank you, our members, for expanding Crowdfunding International worldwide!

 

Within the Support Team we apply guidelines and common sense, when reviewing projects and work hand-in-hand with each other.

Manuela van der Kort
Support Department

Hello everybody, my name is Manuela Van der Kort.

I am married to Twan, one of the Co-founders of CFI.

I am the proud mother of our three children. My two boys, Mika and Ravi and my little girl Zara.

Together we are a very happy and very busy family.

For the last 17 years, we were entrepreneurs in the Gastronomy business and had a great time doing that!

 

In 2015 the idea of a new internet crowdfunding platform came to mind by the founders. From that moment on our life has been a rollercoaster. It started with a lot of research and brainstorming.  And finally, after a lot of hard work, there was the very special day of the launch. What followed was absolutely amazing. It was so much fun, watching the platform grow and evolve and as you know it continues to do so on daily basis!

 

My job within the team is reviewing of projects and identifications. I can tell you that I have come across so many beautiful projects over the last months, which felt really rewarding. When time allows I help out around the office by doing all kind of tasks, such as translations, paperwork etc.

My biggest goal is seeing all of you get a step closer to reaching your dreams and fulfil your heart desire.

 

Happy Crowdfunding!
