Hi, nice to meet you!
My name is Jonas
, I'm the new editor of the Slice. Born and raised in The Netherlands, and spent my professional career in Amsterdam, Berlin and Dublin. I work in Tech in growth and product roles with both startups and big tech (prev eBay & Facebook and currently at Snap).
I have a big passion for side projects. Last year I founded Duuce a marketplace for buying and selling newsletters and did tons of other tiny (unsuccessful) ones…Fun fact, I paid for my wedding through a side project (built a comparison tool for buying iPhones).
The passion for side projects comes from my love for ideas. I find inspiration in new products, tools, industry trends and founder stories. But also in music (I play guitar and piano), books and philosophy. The Slice is the perfect outlet to share this passion.
Every week I’ll try to inspire, stimulate and improve both my and your ideas for creating great things. I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as I do. Nic has done an impressive job in building The Slice from scratch. As he wants to focus on new things I’m happy we can keep The Slice and even have Nic stay on as an advising editor.
I’m very much looking forward to connecting with you and very open to your feedback and ideas for the newsletter.A small gift..
I've made the database with all articles that have been featured on The Slice (+165) available for you here
. And the same for all featured products (+115) here.
Connect to me on twitter
, would appreciate that.
Let’s dive into this week's newsletter!
p.s. I've added a new section to the newsletter: 1-2-1 interview. This week with myself, next week with someone else!
