Anneke Van Hoorn

Medical biologist with entrepreneurial spirit

As Medical Technology Business Developer, I support northern SMEs and startups within this sector in their development. For example, in their search for knowledge, access to markets, funding or a suitable location.

My affinity with healthcare is great. I grew up in Hoogeveen as the daughter of an ENT doctor and a general practitioner. After studying medical biology at the RUG, I worked as a regional manager for a large pharmaceutical company. After this I was co-owner of a company in innovative anti-theft locks for almost 20 years. In this period I experienced that entrepreneurship has its ups and downs and that a little support and being able to discuss bottlenecks can be very nice. I also have several years of experience in drug research.

In my spare time I like to get on a mountain bike around Langelo. This is where I have been living with my boyfriend Hans for two years. We like to travel to admire nature. I also love nature underwater. Since I got my Padi Advanced Open Water in Egypt in 2018, I dive to the bottom of the sea every vacation for a while. After years of fanatical horse riding I sold my horse, but am still in the organization of the Horse Cross in Norg.

In March 2022 I started as a business developer at NOM and to support the Medical Technology companies I like to engage with entrepreneurs. How wonderful it is to use innovative ideas to improve the quality of life and efficiency in healthcare in the Northern Netherlands. NOM is happy to help you grow and develop your business.
