Wiekie van der Geest

Since 2018, Wiekie has been working with us on beautiful international projects and is responsible for the company’s accounting. But that’s not the only thing that keeps her busy. In fact, she also runs the company Handelsgeest in Grou, which builds boats and rents out light and sound installations.

Nynke de Jager

In 2016, Nynke joined Inqubator as a management assistant, and is now completely at home in the international project world as a project manager. Besides managing and implementing the international projects, Nynke enjoys coming up with new projects. She enjoys involving new organizations without international experience in this world, to see what opportunities lie ahead.

You can motivate her with the right amount of chocolate, which she later burns off with a good game of handball.

Sasha Dijkstra

The psychology background of our project manager Sasha, is an excellent basis for her quality work in European projects. The knowledge of psychological processes is very useful, especially when it comes to integrating soft skills, which are becoming increasingly important. This is important not only in entrepreneurship but also with international partners.

Together with her husband, she has a beautiful daughter, is passionate about closing the gender gap, travels the world and loves…. watermelons.

Lotte Duursma

Lotte has been working full-time with us as assistant project manager since 2022. Meanwhile, she works on several international projects and enjoys traveling to partners in European countries. This also fits well with her background in International Relations. The variation in work means she can always dive into a new topic. She also enjoys swimming, cycling and watching soccer with her boyfriend.

Besides sports, she also loves the “burgundian” life and likes to go out for dinner with a nice glass of wine.
