Sharing post-growth entrepreneurship with the world – Melanie Rieback

Vandaag het gesprek met Melanie Rieback.

Dr. Melanie Rieback is the CEO/Co-founder of Radically Open Security, the world’s first non-profit computer security consultancy company. She is also a former Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Free University of Amsterdam (VU) who performed RFID security research (RFID Virus and RFID Guardian), that attracted worldwide press coverage, and won several awards. 

Melanie worked as a Senior Engineering Manager on XenClient at Citrix, where she led their Vancouver office. She was also the head researcher in the CSIRT at ING Bank, where she spearheaded their Analysis Lab and the ING Core Threat Intelligence Project. For fun, she co-founded the Dutch Girl Geek Dinner in 2008. 

In the episode on making good money of Tegenlicht I learned about legal constructions for setting up your company that limits profit extraction by shareholders or owners. That is where I learned about Melanie and her company and I wanted to learn more about it. Melanie shares lots of information on the structure of her business, profits and post growth entrepreneurship. It was an interesting conversation and I learned about different ways of setting up your company that isn’t all about growth and profit extraction.

Enjoy the insights with Melanie.
