About me

I connect geeks, entrepreneurs and investors, mostly in Paris. On this blog, I write about my thoughts on technology entrepreneurship, venture capital and the FrenchTech ecosystem.

I am a Managing Director at Avolta Partners, a boutique investment bank that provides strategic advise on fundraising and M&A to emerging technology leaders.

I am also the founder and Managing Director of StartUp42, a non-profit tech startup accelerator in Paris, backed by EPITA and several other corporations.

A computer science and telecom engineer by training (INCI and EPITA) , I  quickly moved to the dark side of the force working 1 year as a Product Manager for a French startup (Transatel), then 5 years in Innovation and Business Development for a US telecom service provider (Syniverse).

I regularly teach and speak about entrepreneurship and innovation.

I was born and raised in Guadeloupe (F.W.I.), lived previously in Lebanon, United States, Slovakia and traveled to 57 countries so far. I currently live in beautiful Paris.
