A family office established by an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs
We understand the great entrepreneurial adventure and ensuing emotional roller-coaster, the journey undertaken by these people who are utterly devoted to their endeavour. We are agile, pragmatic and rooted in the daily reality of entrepreneurs. We stand by their side with perspicuity, care and exacting standards of implementation. We always strive to create the most conducive conditions for a project’s success.
Responsiveness and support
- Our primary motivation is entrepreneurial: we want to make projects grow; financial performance is only a consequence.
- We select projects whose vision we share and which we want to support, without any time constraints.
Responsiveness and flexibility
- Our decision-making processes are simple and fast, and our structure (simplified joint stock company without external investors) offers us great flexibility.
- We invest in ticket sizes ranging from €300k to €3m
- We take part in seed and series A funding rounds
- We are agnostic in terms of sector and business model
- We can be leader, co-leader or follower
A chartered accountant by training, I joined Evolem in 2008 after 8 years as a consultant at Arthur Andersen (Paris & Lyon) and 2 years as a management controller at Matra Bae Dynamics (London)
Building and developing a family office combining the best of both worlds: finance and entrepreneurship; a family office which is respectful of companies, their environment and the people who work for them. I joined this organisation for the entrepreneurial values portrayed by Evolem and its founder, for the plan to build a professional and ambitious family office, for the strategy and values which Evolem embodies and set it apart, and which it has developed over time.
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!
And all the companies we support via Evolem Platform and those accompanied since the creation of Evolem.
