Peter-Paul Van Hoeken | Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Peter-Paul has over 15 years of experience in finance, investment management and business consultancy. He's held mulitple senior management positions with global banks in the areas of corporate strategy, commercial and investment banking. Peter-Paul has also held management consultancy roles in Europe.

While Peter-Paul enjoyed a successful career in international banking, he decided to embark on the entrepreneurial path. His career move coincided with he and his family jumping the pond and landing in Canada. Upon relocation to Canada in 2010, Peter-Paul worked as consultant for several early stage and growth companies. In that period he experienced the challenges that young companies face in attracting capital and realized how the venture financing space was essentially not using any of today's available technology. In 2013 Peter-Paul founded FrontFundr to address this challenge and take on the opportunity to create the New Capital Market. He also serves as a director on the National Board of the Private Capital Markets Association in Canada. Peter-Paul holds a Master of Science in business economics and finance from Erasmus University Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.
