Orange Growth Capital (OGC)
Reinier’s career has taken him across a diverse range of international environments, from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies. For the decade prior to founding Orange Growth Capital, an early-stage FinTech-focused venture capital firm, Reinier worked for leading high tech and financial services firms as a Partner with McKinsey & Company. At McKinsey he spent the bulk of his time helping companies with their strategy, which ranged from M&A and restructuring business unit strategy to portfolio management.
Reinier once dropped out of college to start an online college community (“Stutopia”); however, it did not turn out to be the Facebook he had hoped for and he returned to get his degree. Upon graduating he joined Voyager Capital in Menlo Park, California.
