Mathijs started his career as a lawyer first at Buren Legal and later at Allen & Overy. He then moved to Rabobank, where he worked on corporate development projects and Rabobank’s M&A transactions before working at Rabobank’s corporate investments team. As investment director he was responsible for several fund and (co-)investments as well as companies in turnaround situations. He then set up a new venture capital team in Rabobank focussing on Healthcare and Sustainability. With his strong analytical skills he quickly gets to the essence of a situation and he is at his best in challenging and rapidly changing situations, such as restructurings, M&A and in exploring new innovative business opportunities.
