SLE Enterprises: CEO

Are you our future CEO?

We are SLE Enterprises B.V., and we are going to revolutionize the encapsulation industry with our patented breakthrough technology of scalable liquid encapsulation (SLE). 

For encapsulation of any target cargo, you typically need a polymer material containing microplastics to wrap the cargo and create an encapsulation. SLE’s technology doesn’t require any such material. It uses liquid encapsulation to wrap the target cargoes. By eliminating the use of microplastics, we are driving sustainability and lowering overall energy and cost.

We are current researching several industries that could use our encapsulation: food, beverages and confectioneries, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

To build SLE into the impact-driven disruptive company we envision it to be, we are looking for a motivated, passionate and high-energy CEO to join our team. The CEO will report directly to the Founder & President of SLE. The current SLE team brings 20+ years of R&D experience and a combined 40 years of upper-level management experience.
