An Interview with Gideon Van Dijk, Chargetrip
- May 4, 2020 4:06 pm GMT
I was introduced to Gideon by co-founder Pieter Waller. I met Pieter at the rEVolution event in Amsterdam two years ago. It’s been fascinating to watch their growth, including an A-round of fundraising, and a partnership with Porsche. Gideon shares some really valuable insights from that journey, in particular we talk luck and resilience!
