THNK connection: THNKer , EMERGE - Class 06

My name is Joost Borneman a.k.a. the Bambooman. I'm 26 years old and after my studies, I decided to continue living in the oldest city of The Netherlands: Nijmegen. I have a background in sales and marketing but since my internship in Costa Rica in 2016, I realized I wanted to work with purpose.

Back in Europe, we started BambooLogic, Europe's bamboo plantation program, to contribute to a circular industry with bio-based materials. I am participating in the EMERGE: Lead With Courage program to inspire Europe with the endless possibilities of bamboo.
