Research assistant
Short biography 

Max works as a research assistant in the Institutions for Collective Action research team in which he primarily focuses on the CollectieveKracht platform. Intrigued by his experience working for a social enterprise, he chose to deepen his knowledge on topics such as social corporate investing and cross-sector partnerships by enrolling in the Global Business & Sustainability program at the Rotterdam School of Management, where he obtained his master’s degree in 2020. In his thesis, he adopted a multi-disciplinary approach crossing the traditional boundaries of a business school by conducting philosophical research on the moral limits of markets. His main interests are at the heart of sustainability and, in particular, social enterprises and cooperatives. In this respect, Max is highly excited to be part of the ICA team and to contribute to the knowledge on institutions for collective action as a force for good.
