Jons Janssens

Ace & Tate

Jons Janssens likes to start, build and change things. He’s a product guy
on the business side of technology—product development is his
tool for driving growth at tech companies. Transforming existing products
and services that bring value to consumers or companies is what he loves.
For Jons, technology without proper application doesn’t make any impact.

Jons started his first company during university, building PCs that looked
like Macs—which were not as fetching as the latter according to him.
From there, he started Marvia (CMS for print) and built a new digital
experience for PostNL, after which he initiated a small venture fund to
invest in tech startups that create a positive impact. He joined Ace & Tate
in January 2017, and is currently figuring out what the future of retail
will look like there. ‘Build, measure, learn’ is his maxim.

Outside of work, you’ll find him making time for reading, philosophy and
meditation. He also curates a database of ‘life experiences’, with the goal
to turn this into an app one day: “I believe life is about collecting memories
and I would like to keep track of my path through the days.”
