van Hoegaerden

Georges is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, CEO, venture catalyst, turned innovation economist (by fate). First inspired by computers at age 14, he worked his whole life on first the buy-side and then the sell-side of technology, globally.

Georges came to Silicon Valley by direct request from Larry Ellison (then CEO) after having demonstrated outlier success in Oracle’s new media business. After leaving Oracle Georges founded The Venture Company and raised over $14M in venture capital and produced over $100M in investor returns.

In 2015 he founded TechToko to curate and promote more responsible and renewable technology innovation.
