“After a substantial period focused in sales and account management for major brands such as LEGO, Campari, Louis Vuitton and Sara Lee, I know work as an independent consultant. My unique focus is on helping start-ups and SME develop their sales channels, processes and grow business sustainably. Joining Clever Clover as one of their Expert Network fits perfectly with my passion and expertise!”
Says Jens Köster on being invited to join our international network of senior specialists, coaches and consultants that we provide to our supported start-ups. This selected peer network is a core value that we provide, being one of very few global seed and early-stage accelerators to specialise in traditional industry sectors.
Jens comes with over ten years of experience in developing sales channels across Europe and in Germany in particular. His expertise lies in helping sales teams develop new approaches and is a skilled coach and trainer.
Heinrich Prokop, co-founder and Managing Director of Clever Clover states, “Jens stands out as a superb and accomplished sales manager. Which combined with his envious roll-call of top brands, makes him a brilliant resource to have available for our start-ups; especially our retail and consumer goods ones.” Clever Clover focuses on supporting innovation in traditional industry sectors and has several start-ups currently operating in sporting goods, household furniture, and consumables. “Looking forward, as Clever Clover continues to grow its investment base and launches a new, much larger, fund in 2016, having a pool of top-talent ready for our start-ups to tap into gives us an edge that few other seed or early-stage funds can compete with.”
