We are happy to announce that Maarten van Raaij will support the BLOOM team as an intern. Although young at age, Maarten already brings in experience from both the consulting and the investment sector.
Maarten completed a BSc in International Economics (cum laude) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, complemented with a six month exchange to Auckland, New-Zealand. After graduating he started working as a sales and marketing assistant and later as consultant for a private equity boutique to gain valuable work experience. In his role as consultant he further developed his curiosity and skills for discovering applicable business insights from large sets of data. Illustrative for the projects he worked on was redesigning the store lay-out of fashion retailers based on industry-wide data to increase their revenues. Next to his multiple jobs he stayed an active member of his study association organising study trips.
After his internship, he will continue his studies by following the newly offered master Data Science & Marketing Analytics at the Erasmus School of Economics.
