Edwin Backes

Edwin, our chair, sees himself still as a rookie with his five years’ of experience in impact investing. Coming from an entrepreneurial family that had been running a successful family business for just over a hundred years, he had the vision to reshape the Benelux dental lab industry with the help of former competitors to become the market leader.
 
Once the company was a market leader, he sold his stake to switch his attention to sustainability and impact investing. He has a strong business mind and believes in the transformative impact that digital platforms and peer-to-peer communities can create to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
 
He tries to live by the mantra: Do Good. Better. Together. That is why he is passionate about PYM and what it can achieve as a community. His mission is to make impact and sustainable investing mainstream.
