STARTUPS I INNOVATION I INVESTOR I SPEAKER I WRITER
Standing at the crossroads of entrepreneurship, innovation and venture capital – one foot on each side
(yes, I have three feet 🙂 )
Startups & Scale-ups
I’ve founded, grown, sold or been involved in 12+ startups in 20 years – I know the game and how to best prepare, anticipate threats, maximise chances and seize opportunities. You know your business better than anyone. Let’s join forces to turn your venture into an eye-catcher deal – faster and better than corporate advisors or accelerators.
I provide innovation consulting services to companies and investment funds by identifying and analysing the best opportunities worldwide, by ensuring a qualified deal flow and evaluating startups following a structured methodology. Having co-founded a startup scouting technology company, my expertise sits in the middle of innovation, technology and venture capital.
My entrepreneurship endeavours led me through a handful of areas I had the chance to dig deep into. I humbly help people and organisations walk through the fog, make sense of it all and identify the best paths forward, in the following domains: artificial intelligence, data science, innovation scouting, digital publishing, blockchain, cryptocurrencies and decentralised finance (DeFi).
Before speaking, get your hands dirty for 20+ years first.
I am a so-called serial entrepreneur having founded, grown and managed a handful of startups (and sold some of them to large companies), leading them from inception to exit. A peek on my Linkedin profile will give you more details.
Writing stories is
the most exciting thing I do (on paper)
Writing (in French) is in my blood since I’m a teenager. I finished my first (horrible) book at 12. I’m still writing every day. My favourite format is the very short story (microfiction) based on real events. I write under another name.
I’m engaged in a couple of NGOs and non-profits as an active volunteer. I organise and lead humanitarian dental missions in Africa on a bi-yearly basis.
Children’s healthcare around the world is a subject that is dear to my heart.
Raising decentralised finance awareness with DeFinity Club
Convinced that decentralised finance is one of the most promising technology to sanitise the global financial system and improve financial accessibility for everyone on earth, I co-created this non-profit to raise the global awareness of DeFi.
