Roel Pieper’s investment firm bankrupt

Investment company European Technology & Research Centre (Etric), set up by Dutch internet guru and entrepreneur Roel Pieper, is bankrupt, the Financieele Dagblad reports on Thursday.

Pieper apparently wrote to his business contacts last week saying he had applied for bankruptcy because ‘shareholders are not prepared to make any more financial resources available’.
