Francis Quint

Francis joined Rabo Investments in November 2019.


Francis spent the early years of her career in international M&A for KPN Telecom, before setting up a global customer care company on behalf of KLM. She joined Private Equity firm NPM Capital in 2000, where she could leverage her business experience as well as her financial expertise in investing in medium to large sized (family owned) companies.


She decided to switch her career in 2009 to her other passion, art, in working as an exhibitions curator and writing a book about Michiel van Musscher, an unknown portrait painter in the Dutch Golden Age. After that she realised, she missed the impact and the ambition of the investments and she became responsible for setting up and managing early and later stage venture capital funds for InnovationQuarter until November 2019.


Francis choice for the VC/PE world results from a passion for innovation and a desire to make an impact in the world. She is one of the founders of Fundright, a VC initiative to increase diversity in investment funds and their portfolio companies. She is also board member of several funds and at Matrix/Science Park Amsterdam. Francis has a graduate degree in Business economics from the VU Amsterdam, and a bachelor’s degree in Art history from the University of Amsterdam.
