jan is a visionary who figures out customer-focused strategies so our ventures can unleash their full potential and take off. at sparrow ventures he is in charge of the ventures themselves, meaning that he is supporting and grooming them, and kicking asses if need be. also, in theory he sees a point in running up a mountain if there is a restaurant serving cold beer on top. in practice he prefers taking the cable car.

alex is a brilliant planner and loves the details and dirt of daily operations. his primary job at sparrow ventures is to establish and maintain our venture building processes, assure that the operations of our ventures are up and running and to make sure that they get all the needed support from our venture operations teams. also, he doesn’t understand how anyone can run up a mountain without being chased by a bear – walking is just fine.
