About An Tanghe

I am happily married and a dedicated mother of two fantastic boys, 13 and 16 years old.  I love to read, to run and mountainbike, to cook for and meet up with friends. Besides, I am a self-motivated, driven and passionate professional.

I hold a PhD in Molecular Cell Biology, a master in Food and Dietary Sciences and an Industrial Engineering degree, but have been shaped at least as much by my professional experiences.

Throughout my career, I have been able to take on a series of highly interesting projects and positions, covering about all stages and corners of the innovation value chain – from research over management to entrepreneurship.

Curiosity, opportunity and daring to explore new grounds has gradually led me to the exciting intersection of health, technology and innovation, which has become my favourite habitat.

Today, I’m grateful that I can consolidate, valorise and extend my interests, knowledge, experience and network in amazing projects and organisations that I support as an independent professional.

I am an aggregator, broker and connector by nature and a strong believer in the power of multi-disciplinarity, networks and ecosystems. True innovation happens at cross-sections, through joined forces and enlarging the cake.

Looking forward to exchange thoughts!
