Piet is a Belgian independent impact investor and promoter of social entrepreneurship and impact financing. In addition to his historical ties to the family business and as director of the family holding company, he is building an ecosystem in Belgium where non-profit and for-profit will collaborate around positive social impact. Through various system-changing initiatives where he was a corner investor or first believer, he wants to inspire his peers, other next gens of family businesses, to accept greater risks and lower financial returns. 

Piet also founded Impact House in Brussels, a dynamic hub for change agents, and is co-founder of Impact Finance Belgium. With SI3 Fund, he focuses on equal opportunity and inclusion.
