Simone van Neerven

Simone van Neerven is a partner at the Adaptable Mindset program. She holds a masters in Mathematics, and she is fascinated by people. Curious and creative, always learning.

In 2018, she founded her own company ‘’ after a long successful corporate career. She is a catalyst for innovation supporting organizations in their innovation journeys in various ways. From a 2 year role as head of innovation at Vueling airlines in Barcelona, to boosting innovation at Mourik, a Dutch civil engineering company, and Chanel a French luxury brand.

For Simone, innovation is certainly not only about tech, but very much about people. Without the right mindset innovation will never be successful. One of her inspirations is Pipi Longstocking, who always said “I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that”
