Jan Hoffmeister

As co-founder of Drooms, Jan Hoffmeister was one of the trailblazers for the introduction of virtual data room solutions in Europe.

In 2001, Jan Hoffmeister founded the company to provide physical data rooms for transactions. His real goal, however, was to digitise this process and offer an online due diligence platform. After an intensive development phase, his ideas about how such a platform should look and perform came to fruition. As a result, Drooms is now the leading virtual data room provider in Europe.

Jan has over 15 years of experience as a manager, mainly at Siemens, in the areas of corporate finance and M&A in Germany, Switzerland, and the USA.

After an apprenticeship at Siemens AG in Berlin, Jan studied business economics at the Technical University of Berlin and specialised in the Economics of Finance.
