Painting The Internet

Painting The Internet, or Paintin9, was founded by Elco Ian in 2015 with the idea to make the world a cooler place to live in. Paintin9 works closely together with founders to realise growth for today's most innovate ideas.

Worked as founder, product manager and in business development in early-stage (launching concepts) and in later-stage (revenue generating) start-ups.
