A better world
After five years of working in the private sector, while working for an English company in Switzerland, Reinoud decided to quit his job and use his business insights and talents for a better world. To do so 5 years ago, he started Salève.
Salève was named after Mont Salève near Geneva, the name of his mountain originates from the French word s’èlever. Which roughly translates as getting up or lifting up. This symbolizes what we do for people, organizations and partnerships, get them up and running. So after that they themselves can continue to make impact, try new things, succeed and sometimes fail, and then get back up.
