It’s a feel-good book about life, sports and motivation, positivity, business and winning.

A very strange word, but in Dutch it means just the opposite of a traditional entrepreneur.

The word does not even exist in Holland. However, the stories and business experiences are universal. After the success of the first Dutch Edition, this is the International Edition. This edition has over 15+ short stories about a different way of doing business.

How Einstein meets Ice Cube in business and what Notorious B.I.G. got to do with Jean Paul Sartre.

With beautiful drawings from Wouter Sluis.

Inspirational illustrations with personal anecdotes and business adventures. This book invites us to look at things differently, it makes the entrepreneurial journey incredibly engaging and much more fun!

Mesut Celebi, Cofounder Startupbootcamp New York, Board Member Round Table New York & Founder FABstart New York City

Do we not all prefer to be ‘Bovengevers’ rather than Entrepreneurs? Recognition and inspiration splashes off the beautiful small pages.

Marja Ruigrok, Entrepreneur & Party Chairman of the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy Amsterdam, Spokesperson Economic Affairs

This is a great intiative, you can expect a heartfelt welcome in New York! This is a very handy book!
