Valentijn has a passion for everything that is creative in life. He believes more people should learn how to apply design-thinking, not only to create new value in their business, but also in their own lives, because design is about envisioning and creating a world you’d like to live in.
With over 15 years of experience as a UX-expert and creative director he co-founded the digital product-design studio Little Miss Robot. In 2014 he co-founded Wonderland where he helps companies explore new opportunities with design-led innovation and business-prototyping in a time of digital transformation.
As a renowned designer and creative entrepreneur, he lectures at academic institutions including Vlerick business school, EHSAL management school, Erasmus university and the Antwerp Management School, among others. In his spare time he advises creative entrepreneurs and acts as a mentor in several startup-incubators and accelerators in Europe.
