Sander Eijkenduijn

Co-Founder at SCORPEO US LLC

We need real changes in eduction. Simply learning textbook solutions is not good enough. The real world is not a textbook. Students need to learn to operate outside their comfort zone, take risks, and embrace failure to better themselves. They need to be prepared so they can take on the challenges of a constantly changing environment. This is why I believe Learn to Start’s mission is so important.

Sander started his career in 2000 as a tax lawyer for PwC in Amsterdam and London. After 9 years he changed career and became an complex financial instruments structurer, first at Barclays Capital and later with Nomura International.
