Charles Van den Bergh


I have always been intrigued by people that have the guts to change things, take risks, name problems and be ambitious. Or as the slogan goes, people who "think different". I'm a Belgian who doesn't like chocolate - go figure.

At Keen, my job is to help us better understand the future and gain conviction by regularly developing investment theses. I enjoy analyzing how technology can change industries and finding founders that are stubborn and resilient enough to make it happen.

Curious by nature, I enjoy being surrounded by different opinions and cultures, while continuously exploring exciting new places beyond my native Belgium. In my free time, I enjoy catching up with friends, reading non-fiction, going for long walks, and supporting my favourite football team towards another glorious victory.

Professional Bio
Before moving into venture capital, I gained experience as a product manager at a digital product studio developing custom-made ventures for entrepreneurs and corporations. Prior to this, I worked as an investment banking analyst at Arma Partners in London, advising tech companies on their M&A and growth financing ambitions. I obtained a postgraduate degree in Financial Management from Vlerick Business School and hold a master’s degree in Law & Economics from KU Leuven.
