Bert Hubert | Owner of Netherlabs

Bert Hubert studied Physics in Delft (but dropped out halfway), was a board member of the VvTP study association & president of the Bedrijvendagen. He is the founder of PowerDNS.COM BV which powers around 30% of all internet domain names, which was recently sold to the German company Open-XChange. He was also the co-founder of Fox Replay BV, initially a part of Fox-IT in Delft but sold in 2011 to NetScout (NASDAQ: NTCT). He’s also a researcher at TU Delft, where he is involved with novel DNS sequencing & associated software.

In this presentation, Bert will outline some of his real life startup experiences. How ‘the geek inside you’ has to adjust to the worlds of marketing, other people’s marketing, hiring folks, procurement departments & sales. And sales people! After the ups & downs, the story moves to the end-game: the exit. If you want it or not, it is something you have to keep in mind. And decisions you make now can make any exit easy or very hard!
