Johan van Mil
Johan van Mil is co-founder and managing partner of Peak Capital, serial entrepreneur and author of the book “Entrepreneurship: Just do it!”.
During his impressive carreer as an entrepreneur Johan founded 10 companies, including ReturnSocial, Adatus en Mailmedia. He wrote a book based on his experiences: ‘Entrepreneurship: Just do it!’ and he taught entrepreneurship at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and working with young people. At the same time, he was asked to invest in a couple of startups. Both events lead to his new career move. He decided to sell his last company in 2015 and completely focus on venture capital.
