Nick Bogaert: newest partner at Board of Innovation following NY success

October 7, 2020

Over the past few years, the creation and expansion of our New York offices have proven to be a success story. Our activities in the Americas have grown substantially and turned us from a promising start-up to an established go-to innovation partner for leading companies on the continent.

A crucial role in our growth and social program

Nick Bogaert steered the launch of Board of Innovation Americas from day one, and guided our Americas branch towards a promising future. Our social initiative, aimed at NGOs and multilateral non-profits, is also right on track: another initiative in which Nick played a vital part that grew to become a fixture within our organization, together with the help of many colleagues.

Today, we are happy to announce that Nick Bogaert will become the newest partner at Board of Innovation. With this new position, his crucial expertise will be firmly rooted in the company for years to come.

An impressive track record

After working as a consultant specialized in micro-entrepreneurship in South-Africa, Nick burst onto the scene at Board of Innovation with a drive that you don’t often see. Did you know he even offered to work for free for a month – and actually did –, just to get his foot in the door? We’re all glad he made that call.

What’s next

In the months to come, he will stay on as managing director of our Americas branch to oversee his succession, while also advising on the company’s strategic development and taking the lead on large accounts.
