Avid traveler, originally from France, I used to live in Paris, London, New York, Singapore and settled in Munich six years ago. Following 10+-year experience in strategy consulting, private equity and investment banking, I now advise growth stage venture-backed start-ups. I have genuine enthusiasm for anything digital and entrepreneurial with particular focus on mobile, social and content marketing, e-commerce, foodtech and fintech. I also help Corporate Management across different industries in the definition and development of their digital transformation.
