For the third ZUIDAS. magazine we did a cover story with six inspirational women about their passion and their career. What drives them to go for the best results? Self named ‘nerd’ Marleen Evertzs is always ten steps ahead and runs business herself.
With Nxchange, Marleen Evertsz launched a revolutionary stock exchange based on block chain technology. She’s already won several awards but she’s not one to boast about her achievements. “I celebrate our success for my employees but in my mind I’ve already moved on to the next phase.”
A nerd, that’s how Marleen Evertsz would describe herself. “I love being busy developing workable fintech applications all day. That gives me a lot of satisfaction. With the great technology that’s available and the rapid developments it’s a real challenge to come up with something that’s smarter than what is currently on the market.”
Invest in gold
And back in 2010, that’s exactly what she did with GoldRepublic, a company enabling ordinary people to invest in gold. “Of course, you can buy gold at any old bank but 99% of the banks won’t give you the bar number of a physical piece of gold that’s really yours. Not very transparent, is it?”
