Get to know the new Entrepreneur In Residence of Startup Lisboa

David Zwagemaker is a 32-year-old Dutch entrepreneur who founded his first company in 2015, a marketplace for painters in Germany, which he sold in 2017. Since then he's been helping other startups as an advisor and investor.

David holds a double bachelor's degree in Law and Economics from the Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam and has worked in companies such as Rocket Internet and Booz & Company, accumulating experience in the startup's scene and strategic consulting. In April, he decided to move to Lisbon "after seeing the city's great atmosphere, the growing startup ecosystem and the beautiful beaches and parks near Lisbon", he said.

He is now joining the Startup Lisboa team, as the Entrepreneur in Residence, to support incubated companies in a wide range of topics, from business and go-to-market strategies to fundraising and financial modeling.

David Zwagemaker is continuing the work developed by Hugo Augusto, former Entrepreneur in Residence of Startup Lisboa and current Managing Director of the TechStars Lisbon program.
