entrepreneurship and Public Affairs in Paris, France

Hire me

Entrepreneurship is my passion. Helping ecosystems to grow and entrepreneurs to create added value and new services for citizens and businesses is a key driver to me.

I started 3 companies in 15 years (and 2 during my studies ;)), creating leading companies and technologies in Open Source Services, High Performance Computing and Cloud. More recently I joined @OVH as SVP for Strategic Development and Public Affairs.

I actively work on developping ecosystems for tech companies, launching leading initiatives (SAAS Academy, Cloud Infrastructure Service Providers of Europe...) and beeing an active member of several boards (SystemX Institute for Research and Technology, EuroCloud, Systematic Competitivness Cluster, FrenchTech Lille, Engineering Schools...).

I'm always interested to work on something that has not been done before ;) .. changing laws about Personal Data Portability or Surveillance was quite "fun".

I hold 3 Master's degrees in Political Sciences, Telecommunications Management and Entrepreneurship. He is also gartuated from IHEDN (Institut des Hautes Etudes de Défense Nationale).
