What I love

I have two great passions outside of work: riding a mountain bike and watching tons of movies that no one would watch.

I am very proud of my journey from Andermatt (Switzerland) to Amsterdam in 12 days, following almost the entire route of the Rhine.

In Paris, if you want to catch me off guard, you can easily find me at the Filmothèque in Paris.

Analyst

An economist turned to the dark side of the force

Thanks to my background in Economics, I love rigorous reasoning and statistically significant evidence of what is presented to me. I like to put words such as compromise or moral hazard into random conversations. I would be very skeptical if you tried to offer me a free lunch and I always watch out for free riders. Well, I think I’ve reduced the asymmetry of information so that you have the means to maximise the chances of impressing me on a first call!

Innovation will save the world

I see myself as a mission-driven investor: in everything I do, what fuels my action is purpose. Meeting and supporting promising founders with the ambition to change entire sectors or even industries of the economy is what motivates me every morning. Even if I am only a tiny link in the chain, I feel part of an ecosystem of innovators whose ultimate goal is to propel job creation, contribute to the growth of countries’ GDPs and, in the long run, create new millionaires!

Stay hungry, stay resilient

During my bachelor’s degree, I tried to create a tutoring service for middle and high school students, having noticed the lack of a generalized national service such as the one offered by Acadomie in France. We didn’t go national. However, I did get a glimpse of the scale of work and resilience needed to succeed in business. That’s why I’m always very humble when I meet a new team: guys, I know that the real stars are you!
