Seedlinks was founded by Helena Vandebeeck.

Graduated summa cum laude as bio-engineer specialized in tropical agriculture, Helena worked for 20+ years for her Belgian family-owned multi-national company active in the tropical plantation business.

Over her career, she worked in recruitment, M&A, operations and has extensive board experience. Helena lived and worked in Ghana, Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire and Gabon.

Helena held the CEO position of a fantastic horticulture and tissue culture company active in Belgium, China and the USA. As the company was in distress her task was not an easy one, but she managed to turn-around the business in a matter of two years.

She has deep knowledge of the plantation and horticulture industry.

On her journey, she also learned the ins and outs of the boardroom. Over the last few years, she combined this with advisory work and held Board positions in several companies, ranging from start-ups to established players.
