After spending a few years in the Telecom industry (Gemplus) & close to 14 at Apple (last as Head for the Strategy & Business Development for iPhone & iPad in Business in EMEIA), I decided to turn the page on my Corporate life & come back to my love of entrepreneurship & innovation-driven companies.
Starting with mentoring (Seedcamp & many other European based programs) & learning what it was to be an entrepreneur nowadays, I also quickly became actively engaged within the investment / VC community & as an angel investor / advisor myself to various startups (Undagrid / Beasts of Balance).
I am now also :
• A Founding Management Board Member & Chair for the SMEs in the AIOTI (Alliance for IoT Innovation) at the European Commission.
• An adviser to MakerWharf, a community of Maker Spaces between London / Palo Alto & China, created by Lord Nat Wei
• A Founding Board Member of the French IoT Think Tank - alongside key actors of the industry - to advise the government & support the French ecosystem on IoT trends & key challenges.

I've been an active speaker in multiple conferences around the world (Europas, Pioneers, WebSummit, BDLA, ArabNet, Unbound, Latitude59…) most recently around IoT, IIoT & Hardware investments.
