I have a dual background in Law and Finance. After 3 years at Ernst & Young in acquisition audit, I joined Evolem in 2008.
Since 2008, I have had the opportunity to accompany entrepreneurs and their teams in the structuring and development of their SME, by being attentive to their needs and by leading a strategic reflection with them around the ambition they wish to give to their project and the means to achieve it.
What pushed me to join Evolem is above all the entrepreneurial adventure both in the support of SMEs but also within Evolem itself. Everything had to be built and we were lucky enough to have a successful entrepreneur for a teacher!
At Evolem since 2010 supporting entrepreneurs. Curious and responsive.
What I enjoy is helping entrepreneurs throughout all the phases of development. I joined Evolem for Bruno Rousset’s entrepreneurial vision and his drive to give back to society what entrepreneurship had given him.
Graduated from IAE Lyon in Corporate Finance, I spent 2 years in an independent multi-family office before joining Evolem Start in 2018.
What I enjoy is accompanying entrepreneurs from all walks of life in the development of exciting projects.
I joined Evolem with the desire to evolve in an investment structure with a strong entrepreneurial dimension and whose values fully correspond to me.
A graduate of the Political Sciences Institute in Grenoble (Economics-Finance) and EM Lyon (Msc. in Finance), I worked as an analyst at Techmind, where I conducted some fifteen venture capital investments for family offices and corporates. I was also a consultant at Rothschild & Co then at Messier Maris & Associés, tech entrepreneurs in their fund raising and M&A operations.
What I enjoy is unearthing the best entrepreneurs in the French ecosystem in order to share their ever greater ambitions. I joined Evolem in the firm belief that I was joining a tight-knit, honest team which was very mindful of its societal and environmental impact. It’s this social awareness, championed since the beginning, which sets Evolem apart in the world of family investment firms in France. The clarity of the project and the ambition is enticing, and building it methodologically as a team is a really exciting challenge!
With a degree in Management of Technology and Innovation from Dauphine and Mines ParisTech, I had the opportunity to work in the digital sector before providing strategic support to large companies at Tallis Consulting, then to tech entrepreneurs on operational issues.
I love to meet passionate (and exciting) entrepreneurs, to challenge their vision, to discover the deep motivations that drive their thirst for entrepreneurship and greatly contribute to their success. I also like to get alongside the teams and contribute to their success.
By joining Evolem, I have the opportunity to invest in sustainable entrepreneurship and to grow initiatives that carry the brand, ambition and responsibility, alongside a team of dedicated and human professionals. And I did it knowingly since I joined Evolem as an intern at the end of my studies before confirming my commitment as an Associate 8 months after my arrival.
And all the companies we support via Evolem Platform and those accompanied since the creation of Evolem.
