Jeroen Arts


As a former athlete, Jeroen loves to explore his own personal limits and inspire and motivate others to do the same. After receiving an International Economics degree, Jeroen joined Global Sports Communication – a management agency representing world-class track and field athletes. During his time at the company, he worked closely with the world’s best athletes, including Olympic champions.

After the 2012 London Olympic games, Jeroen founded Deskbookers, an online marketplace for work and meeting spaces in the Netherlands. He led the company as the CEO until February 2017 and spearheaded its internationalization by raising venture capital and growing a talented team of 20+ full-time employees.

Jeroen has been a member of the Speedinvest Network Effects team since December 2017 and is dedicated to building tomorrow’s marketplace platforms and the technologies that enable them.

“I get a kick when helping entrepreneurs build companies of the future. After setting up my own company, I joined Speedinvest to fund the next ’Eurocorn’ and support great teams.”
