Bart Markus is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and managers create and grow truly differentiated technology businesses. He focuses on companies in the Sustainable Energy, Semiconductors and deep IP Software and Comms industries. He advocates that success is not just about having the right technology (that's part of it for sure) but also about being able to think on a global scale from day one, and address customers with a simple value proposition across the globe.

As a VC, Bart has predominantly invested in European companies, many of which were able to think globally early on and expand a substantial part of the business to the U.S. These companies benefitted from the world’s largest early adopter market as well as from the talent and experience necessary to succeed.

Bart is the CEO of GAP Technology Holdings, and he is the Chairman of several companies including NexWafe, First Light Fusion, Ultimaker, Orbex and more. He holds an MSc in Applied Physics from Twente University of Technology in the Netherlands and an MBA (with distinction) from INSEAD in France.
