Hi and welcome. If it is your first time, I am honoured with your visit. You have been here before? I am really flattered and humbled with your interest.

You want to know more about me? Really??? Ok, here we go…

Erwin The Hacker

I know that probably you might think that I am doing something obscure, but it is actually the opposite.

I do call myself a hacker because I am always looking for shortcuts and improvements in my life and in the lives of other people and businesses.

As a Startup & Investment Hacker I do help startups and entrepreneurs in achieving their goals quicker and better than when they would do it on their own.

My slogan is: ‘Hack or be hacked, the choice is yours!’.

Erwin The Coach

Around 2005 I made my first steps in the coaching world, and since then I haven’t looked back, and I have fully integrated in personal and professional life.

XXX-Coaching is my my coaching brand, where I do very exclusive coaching.

Erwin The Entrepreneur

Since my teens I knew that I wanted to be an entrepreneur, and since many years I am. As each entrepreneur, I have had my successes as well as failures, which are the learning stones for the successes.

Further down you can see which are the current projects I am currently connected with.

Picture of Erwin The Family Guy

I hear you already saying: where is that famous family picture…

My personal life is a very important part in my life, but I do want it keep as private as possible, and that is why there i no family picture.

But, as you can see on the picture, I am a very happy daddy. Married to my beautiful wife Mónica and father of Alejandro and Alberto.
