STEPHANIE OPDAM
Vice President
Notion Capital

Born in the Netherlands to two entrepreneurs, she grew up within her parents’ travel start-up. In her teens, she spent the summer peeling tulip bulbs with her friends at the local farm and, having first tried it at age 8, became an avid sailor.

In 2011, sailing (and tulips) were abandoned to study International Business instead. Putting theory into practice, she set up a non-profit NGO together with a friend, which shut down after 2 years due to difficulties in further scaling their operations. Switching gears, she then pursued a degree in Finance and Private Equity in London, where she was recruited out of the classroom.

In 2015, Stephanie started working at Columbia Lake Partners, a new venture debt fund. Here, she screened SaaS companies after raising the first institutional money and exercised her love for numbers in financial analyses and tailoring debt structures for new portfolio companies. She was introduced to multiple Notion portfolio companies during these years which led to a co-investment in Brightpearl and deep admiration for the operational expertise of the Notion team.

In 2018, Notion adopted her into their community of hard-working and fun colleagues. There, her role is to find disruptive tech companies with special focus on the Benelux and DACH region.
