About this event
This series of events is a collaboration among innovative hubs that aim to strengthen connections and support impact-driven entrepreneurship in The Hague. It’s the ideal occasion to network, learn from experienced founders, and explore solutions to shared challenges.
We present an informal interview with a seasoned entrepreneur who will share with the audience their experience.
Find out who your fellow impact entrepreneurs are. Get easy access to the support you need, learn where to find future talent and get tips on how to train yourself and your team on doing business and doing good.
Teun Kraaij, the founder of Lucy, a sustainable #aviation company, will join us for the next edition of Startup Tuesday on the 29th of November. Teun spent his early years living among locals in Cameroon where both his parents volunteered as development workers preserving the rain forest. This experience left a lasting impression and seeded a strong conviction to commit to addressing the #climate crisis. After a career as a professional athlete, he joined McKinsey working in strategy and #sustainability in the US, Europe and the Middle East.
He completed an MBA at Oxford University and founded BuyBay, a company focused on reducing waste in e-commerce. BuyBay enjoyed exponential growth for many years and was eventually sold to private equity in 2019. Witnessing how entrepreneurship can initiate system change, he set sights on aviation – a meaningful and complex source of negative climate impact – and founded Lucy in 2021.
Fly with Lucy
Lucy was founded to accelerate the advent and adoption of sustainable aviation. We do this by leading the transformation to 0-emission air travel in Europe, offering the fastest, most sustainable way to travel across the EU. We are a new kind of airline offering door-to-door services by operating small and electric aircraft through thousands of latent low-congestion regional airports, all in one app.
