Jeroen in ’t Veld

Managing Director

Jeroen in ’t Veld is Managing Director and Co-founder at Rebel Group, where he is responsible for the realisation of public-private projects. Next to this, Jeroen is the formal chairman of the Hyperloop Development Program foundation. In this role Jeroen is closely involved with constructing the Hyperloop program and connecting the partners within this consortium.


Rebel is a dynamic and fast-growing consultancy company in Rotterdam, which focuses on financial-economic and strategic consultancy within the areas of urban development, transportation, sustainability, healthcare, and the social domain.


The ability to identify and work with partners is a powerful source of competitive advantage, particularly when it comes to creating new growth products and services. Despite the absolute necessity to innovate with partners, it can be a real challenge to get aligned with other organisations, let alone to receive internal support for these new collaborations. In this Virtual Round Table Nisha Bakker from Hardt Hyperloop and Jeroen in ’t Veld from Rebel Group will elaborate on their partnership to disrupt the transport industry with a sustainable mode of transport for long distance travel.
