Ben Bos – A 20 years old Entrepreneur from Netherlands

Ben Bos

Tell us something about yourself:

My name is Ben Bos from the Netherlands. I am currently 20 years old and active as Entrepreneur. 


Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Sure, I am currently in the family business which is a business in power supplies. We supply distribution boxes, cable and (street)lightning for all around the globe. Currently I am working on a new concept for mobile charging stations in my own country! I always loved to invest in businesses. Recently I setup a business plan called Bike4Now, a global bike sharing concept with the newest and best technology. 


Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

There are so many stories that interest me because actually that is what keeps me running, but there is one story that’s on top of all! The bike sharing system I created myself we had to get permits from the government. While trying to get them, the government came with a nice business proposal and we were able to sell our whole concept to the Gemeente Amsterdam. So in a few years the capital city of the Netherlands will be full of my own innovated bikes! How nice is that to see your own product in your environment!


Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Just never give up! Keep investing in yourself first and after you know what you are able to just keep investing until you reach your goal. That’s not specific for my industry but the mind-set I think you need to have if you want to get successful in any way!


None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Actually my family supported me really well. Of course my family is really business minded but I got my own twist in to that. They supported me and really helped me the way to think in life, which is the most important over all! 


How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

We are investing a lot in the green environment with mobile charging stations and different types of material, and low power losses! We have to think about the future now a days.  


Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

Yes I have! “The best way to break the cycle of oppression is to make your dreams a reality” this Quote from Grant Cardone keeps inspiring me!
