Orange Wings Services

Orange Wings works with a dedicated team of experts to help and inspire entrepreneurs to be the best they can be. They are all committed individuals with a known track record and years of experience in their field. Because we know great ideas can grow into great businesses, given the right support. Orange Wings (often) fully finances the fees of these professionals in the early phase, giving startups a boost towards success.  

Shawn Harris

Shawn founded Orange Wings as a startup accelerator for promising new businesses. She is passionate about everything she does – if Shawn believes in an idea, she will stand by it. It is one of the reasons why she is such an inspiration to young entrepreneurs. She helps them believe in themselves and make the most out of their great idea.

Erik Molendijk

Erik Molendijk supports Orange Wings companies with finding new staff. The existing network of a startup or scale-up is taken as a starting point and a mix of professional services is added. He helps organizations develop an aligned vision on recruitment, get more and better suitable applicants, leading to shorter vacancies and ultimately a better performing organization.

Miranda Duijnisveld
Financial Management

It is Miranda Duijnisveld’s passion to ensure entrepreneurs gain insight in the financial status of their company. Not just because they have to, but because they want to. It is good to know where a company came from, but it is more important to foresee what the future holds and how to respond to these developments. She loves to show entrepreneurs the fun in finance.
