Pascal Boogaert - LinkedIn
Pascal Boogaert is a talent connector. His company, Pascal’s Angels, connects companies and clients with marketing and communication freelancers.

What path has your career taken?
After working as a copywriter for 25 years – and the last 15 years as a freelancer - I decided this year to focus solely on matching and connecting freelancers.
What exactly is Pascal's Angels?
I am not an agent who charges a commission, but instead work as a ‘broker’ with a one time, reasonable search fee for the client and a reasonable lead fee for the freelancer. With a network of 2000 freelance 'angels', I can always match the right freelancer with the right job.

Why Zoku?
I started at Zoku on January 3rd this year. I discovered Zoku in December 2018. I knew right away this would be the perfect HQ for my new business. I can easily travel to all my clients from the Weesperstraat, I can chat with freelancers on the sofa, have meetings with clients in the nooks, have dinner with friends and turn strangers into friends during the Fika ;-)

What advice would you give to your 20 year old self?
Go freelancing as soon as possible!
