Johan van Mil

Co-Founder & Managing Partner

“Don’t try to please everybody, look for alternative ways to get things done, give 100% on one big goal – and do not move on before it is done.”

A life-long entrepreneur, Johan has built, bought, and sold over 11 companies, from data marketplaces (Adatus) and social marketing software (ReturnSocial) to email marketing platforms (MailMedia), and more. He looks back on these successes – and failures – as lessons of hustle, perseverance, and humility.

Making the move from founder to investor, Johan founded Peak with 5 fellow entrepreneurs in 2008. Over a decade and 4 funds later, he ensures Peak’s entrepreneurial DNA continues on: raise capital from experienced entrepreneurs, invest in genuine people, think in big opportunities.

He is the true embodiment of gut instinct and entrepreneurial power in the Peak team. Be it personally hunting for key hires or closing exits, Johan always has his sleeves rolled up to help our founders think bigger and move faster.
