Name Perry Van Rijsingen
Organisation  Not set
Job title CEO at 21st Century Business Growth Advisors

Sector expertise:

Perry van Rijsingen is one of the few international business executives with a strong track record of successful business management, innovation and strategy in large/mature businesses and start-ups, with a deep understanding of how to succeed in both worlds.  In today’s slow growth world, he believes it is the ability of companies to apply the start-up mindset that’s essential for sparking and sustaining growth.  He recently founded “21st Century Business Growth Advisors” to help companies do just that. 

Perry was formerly CEO of two large mature businesses at Philips and grew those businesses at a rate well ahead of his competitors.   Most recently, over a period of almost ten years, he “walked the high wire” of corporate venturing, as CEO of Philips’ Healthcare Incubator, reporting directly to Philips Board of Management.  In this latter role he led, commercialized and coached many start-ups & early growth businesses.  In the process, he created new business models, markets and eco-systems, yielding triple digit growth and significant strategic and enterprise value for Philips.

Perry provides perspective beyond the text-books; he knows how to apply the start-up mindset and experience to today’s real world business challenges.  He can help companies create and scale new businesses, turn stagnant businesses into growth engines, build effective corporate venturing, build and nurture ecosystems, forge strong business partnerships and build/coach effective business teams.  Holding a master’s degree in Biomedical Physics, Perry’s industry experience ranges from Healthcare, Big Data, IVD, Biotech, Electronics and Lighting, but his expertise can bring value to any company seeking to accelerate growth.

Perry can be contacted via LinkedIn or directly via e-mail (
