Anton van der Graaf – Managing Partner

Anton van der Graaf gets his professional sense of reward from combining business development and finance to help smart people make great things happen. Especially if this involves combining technology with impact investing as part of the wider shift to ESG.

Anton is an ardent business-builder who combines strategic thinking and organisational insight with extensive experience in securing financing and funding for startups and scale-ups. He loves what he is doing. And if it has an impact-investment or impact-tech angle, so much the better. Sectors he is or has been involved in include agriculture, fintech, micro-finance and renewable energy.

His role typically involves helping the team prepare for future growth, which itself is a stepping stone to attracting the necessary funding. Taking a deep dive into the business, he identifies the products, strategies, talent and stories that together create an

appealing pitch and a solid investor proposition. This is how he has built innovative investment and fundraising strategies for international clients in Europe, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

A straight-talker with a creative mindset, he believes impact-making business is built on relationships, a shared love of the journey and having a set of positive goals to strive for.

“I see Business Beyond Borders as offering our clients out-of-the-box international solutions without limitations. Solutions that exceed their expectations based on a close entrepreneurial relationship that clearly adds value to our proven Corporate Transaction concepts.”
