Menno van der Zalm

Innovation Director, AkzoNobel


I am passionate about being on top of the latest and greatest in digital technology and economical & social trends, translating that into innovation strategies, new transformative value propositions and business models and executing towards launch and scale-up of these corporate ventures. I do this by being externally oriented, inspiring, challenging and persistent. But even more important, by making the right connections with the right people and eco-systems at the right time.

Past years I have been primarily active in the ENERGY & UTILITIES and CHEMICALS INDUSTRY as an innovation consultant. I enjoyed this a lot! Maybe because of the fact that no one really knows ‘the end-game’ in these turbulent industries. Professionaly, I get excited if I contribute to the development of TRANSFORMATIVE VALUE PROPOSITIONS AND BUSINESS MODELS of the future.
