My name is Thomas and I am working at the European Financial Shared Service center of DHL Express in Maastricht. After graduating, I tried to find an employer which could help me to grow and to gain knowledge and experience in various fields. Besides that, I think it’s also very important that an employer gives you the opportunity to come up with new ideas and supports you in actually executing and implementing these ideas.
I have definitely found the before mentioned criteria in DHL and over the last two and a half years I have been involved in various jobs and initiatives within this company. Although I am an employee and don’t have my own business, I think it’s important to keep inspiring my mind with entrepreneurial related topics. Companies really need ‘intrapreneurs’ in order to innovate and keep up with the current market demand and the competitors.
Via the Founders Club, I try to keep my own entrepreneurial spirit and mindset alive; stay up to date with the acceleration of technological innovations and on disruptions challenging the status quo of common business models.
