“I am inspired by passionate entrepreneurs with a vision to pursue their dream.”
Investment Director

Hanneke Modderman

Hanneke began her career advising startups at a consultancy firm. She subsequently gained experience of various areas of banking as a Financial Trainee at Van Lanschot. As an Associate in Van Lanschot’s Strategy & Corporate Development team, she became involved in M&A projects, among other things. In 2016 Hanneke transferred to the Van Lanschot Participaties team, the predecessor of Bolster. Since 2023, she has also been a board member of ACG Holland, the network organization for everyone who is active in mid-market M&A.

“Inspired entrepreneurs who pursue their vision and follow their dreams are a great source of inspiration for me. The passion they demonstrate is something that I find in our work, too. It fascinates me to dive deep into a specific market and understand it. Although we can never gain as much knowledge as someone who has already been active in the relevant sector for decades, our motivation to know exactly how the business works often makes all the difference. Our interest is genuine. We share the passion for our work with entrepreneurs. They do what they’re good at and passionate about – and so do we. The combination of the two ultimately results in long-lasting collaboration that helps the company to progress.”
