Guido van den Ende

Since September 2017 we, Guido van den Ende and Hannes de Vries, are GE SHARP | creative agents, but as business partners we have been working together for more than 17 years. We like to work for creative people, because we know that with our experience beautiful plans can come to fruition. We are service oriented, well-intentioned, critical and constructive with a pinch of own input. We like to bring your project to taste and help sell it to the rest of the world. We do this via our agency, which consists of a select group of artists, which Hannes strives for. And we speak, write, calculate and edit for and with clients in strategy and fundraising processes. Guido knows the fine of that. Together we are sharper, but apart from that we can also do something:

I worked as a business leader for various festivals and orchestras. Fundraising always belonged to this: is it time to make creative plans concrete, but do not know exactly how? Are you facing the challenge of permanently projecting your project above ground level? Are you looking for current financing options to support your ideals? Then I would like to be your passionate sparring partner.
Contextual tightening of beautiful plans, a creative approach to financing problems and a structured approach is my forte and pleasure. Hannes likes to lend his brain to increase the necessary brainpower. The experience I gained as a business leader and producer of various performing arts institutions forms a solid basis for my work as a strategic advisor and fundraiser in a broader field. I like to dedicate myself to culture makers, educational institutions and social projects (see also the portfolio). Call or e-mail, I am happy to speak to you without any obligation.
