“I have worked with Kristof since 2008, giving technical assistance to take a ground-breaking veterinary anaesthesia product from first concept to worldwide acceptance by the market.
Kristof has the rare ability to visualise the holistic road-map of a project, break it into planned segments and then complete and deliver each segment while staying flexible enough to cope with problems and changes along the way. Kristof can integrate the technical requirements of the project with design and engineering components, project management, packaging and presentation, sales support, marketing and a healthy dash of psychology. It is this skill of simultaneously maintaining a ‘big picture’ view while still focusing on the detail that makes him so effective.
Kristof of Nouvo Venture Works thinks big and he knows what it takes to move from creating an inventive product idea to becoming a valuable worldwide product.”

I worked with Kristof when he was marketing the v-gel Supraglottic airway device and was impressed with the calibre of his work, his attention to detail and the way he stood behind the quality of his product.. He assured that we felt competent using the product safely and always made himself available to answer questions. We are strong believers in the value and quality of the v-gel and use these devices regularly in 90% of the rabbits we anaesthetise.
