Meet Our team

Jacqueline van den Ende

Founder & CEO
Jacqueline is the mother of all ideas and a great storyteller. At Carbon Equity she is responsible for building the team and getting our story out to the public.

I am an entrepreneur cum investor passionate about building high-impact ventures. I have been on all sides of the fence of the entrepreneurial equation. As a founder of De Kleine Consultant and Rocket Internet-backed Lamudi – the largest online real-estate marketplace in South East Asia, I learned the grit and hustle of building a company from scratch. As an investor at HAL Investments – a EUR 12.5bn private equity firm and as a partner at European Seed-stage fund Peak Capital, I learned how money moves the needle and how it catalyzes change. As a fintech scale-up CEO for Ant Financial backed TrueMoney in South East Asia I learned how to steer a large company through growing pains. At Carbon Equity all three perspectives are critical to understanding how we leverage capital to build and scale a net-zero economy from scratch.

Tim Molendijk

Founder & CTO
Hacker–founder. Internet enthusiast. Startup entrepreneur. Tim makes the internet and the internet makes him back, making him the perfect lead of our product development.

Intrigued by the power of computers since the age of eight, when my parents bought our family a PC. Wrote my first little software programs at age 12 and ever since the internet arrived in our home a few years later I haven’t looked back.

I have started up a wide range of businesses, from banner-fueled websites in 1999 to a web hosting company right in the middle of the dot com bubble, to a successful SaaS straight out of university, and a moonshot B2C app that instead of landing us on the moon ended up taking us many other interesting places (among which YCombinator).
