About Me, Myself & I

Jasper Versteege

Jasper Versteege - Witcrafter

Positive / Creative / Analytical / Entrepreneurial

I love being a philosopher and entrepreneur, because I’ve learned how to turn thoughts into actions. I’m proud that I am not afraid to fail, as this makes me resourceful and a fast learner. I like being a generalist that puts things in perspective, as this makes me an open-minded and original strategist. And I envy the experts, but this only keeps me motivated to never stop learning.

I have pitched millions of ideas, launched startups, ran (crowd-) funding campaigns, implemented marketing strategies, created meaningful brands, and always delivered beautiful results.

I easily switch from macro to micro and always see room for improvement. I can handle the technical details, but also communicate with a non-technical audience. I’m at my best when I can use my creative mind to turn challenging problems into concrete solutions. I keep pushing.

My ultimate dreams are to walk on the moon and to unite reason and faith. In the meantime I love to help people push ideas and concepts forward into existence and beyond. Need help to challenge the status quo?


Things That Drive Me

Not to become a man of great success, but to become a man of great value.


Philosophy means 'love for wisdom'. This means you cannot possess wisdom, you can only strive for it. I try to acquire knowledge in all areas of life, but my main interests lie in economics, politics and history. My favorite philosopher is probably Socrates: at least, all quotes on my resume are his!


I have a very broad general interest in both my personal and working life, but I’ve come to learn that I'm triggered most by innovative solutions and new technologies. Things like human space travel, block chain, and the collaborative economy will have a big impact on our future.


Almost all sports can be inspiring. Unfortunately we don't have time to practice all of them, but you could cross my path on the field/court while I'm playing football or squash; and in the wild when I'm cycling or snowboarding. I also visit the Amsterdam Arena regularly to support my club: Ajax!


The Dutch word 'gezelligheid' is considered an untranslatable, and it is is deeply ingrained into Dutch culture. I enjoy and search for it in all its forms: whether I'm playing board games, going out dancing, having dinner with friends or spending quality time with family!
