Mathijs van der Knaap

Manager Finance & Investments

“At VP Capital, assessing sustainability and impact is an integrated part of our investment thesis. We consider both the current status and also create a roadmap to unlock a company’s full potential. I truly believe this will result in sustainable progress and assures our investments are future proof. Next to that, the focus fosters a great working environment where people and wellbeing are central, which creates a great dynamic within our team.”

Our team consists of 10 people and a variety of long term partners. We offer diverse training options ( job-related and non-job related). Most of our team members have been working for VP Capital for many years. Connected teams drive collaboration, nurture healthy working relationships, and promote knowledge-sharing.
We believe that it’s important that there are equal opportunities for all, regardless of ethnicity, skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion and mental or physical disabilities. We are committed to living up to this principle of diversity within our own working environment, be it employees, suppliers or other stakeholders. In the future, we also want to encourage the improvement of diversity within our investment portfolio, but still have many steps to take in this regard.
