Young Author Resurrects 400-Year-Old Dutch Brand Name
Controversial Young Author Resurrects 400-Year-Old Dutch Brand Name.
Shawn Mirza creates new private investment firm under the name The Dutch East India Company, Inc.
It wasn’t enough for Shawn Mirza to write and publish a book at age 20 and enjoy a modest worldwide internet following. Instead, he’s now turned his entrepreneurial sights on taking over the world, channeling his trademark troublemaking sense of humor into resurrecting a 400-year-old brand by calling his new corporation “The Dutch East India Company.”
Previously the world’s first multi-national corporation, The Dutch East India Company is a Delaware S-Corporation, located in Cherry Hill, NJ, that will invest in a variety of seed capital ventures.
“The Dutch East India name represents not only my deference for history in the decision-making and investing process, but the scope of my ambition for the firm. It is my way of putting the world on notice. In many ways, it is the perfect name for a private equity firm. The Dutch East India Company is back,” said Mirza. Created by charter in 1602, Dutch East India was the world’s first megacorporation and first company to issue stock.
Acting as President and CEO, Mirza is supported by a team of three investment professionals and a board of advisors.
