After three professional experiences in the movie production industry during my studies, I finally started my career in strategy and management consulting in 1998.
A few years later, I joined a startup in Internet consulting as the 7th employee ; we grew it to 130 employees across Europe in just one year when we suddenly were hit by the Internet bubble burst.
I then joined A.T. Kearney where I gained international experience as a strategy consultant, serving Corporate clients across strategy, innovation and Tech-enabled transformation initiatives. I led 50+ consulting projects for large clients in the Hi-Tech, Telecom and Media sectors in Europe, Middle-East, North Africa, Asia and the US.
Later, at the Boston Consulting Group, I worked on the launch of startups for Corporate clients, led a global benchmark on Corporate Venture Capital and designed the future CVC of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance (leading global carmaker alliance), Alliance Ventures.
In 2017, I joined the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance to launch Alliance Ventures and to co-lead the management of the fund to invest globally in ambitious startups that develop innovative automotive technologies and new mobility services. I developed an ecosystem of VC and accelerator partners in China, the US, Europe and Israel to source and realize the best investment opportunities. The fund portfolio has now reached a 3x valuation vs invested capital with 3 listed startups and 3 unicorns.
In July 2021, I decided to join forces with my fellow partners Yann, Sébastien and Thierry to co-launch Shift4Good!
On top of that, I have been acting as entrepreneur mentor and business angel for 10+ years and I have been teaching strategy and open innovation for 15+ years at HEC, where I am now involved in the Impact investing academic programs.
