Something that keeps me up at night, in a good way is founders’ ability to create a future most deem impossible. When used to improve people’s life, technological change is the greatest equalizer for humankind.

The most overlooked skill in this business is sales. Be it selling to a potential new hire, a prospective investor or a new customer, exceptional founders (and investors) are constantly selling – especially when the odds are overwhelmingly against them.

inovia is special because the team is both aggressively ambitious and focused while also constantly reinventing itself by always questioning old ways.

Venture-backed businesses thrive on grit. There is always a strong dose of passion and perseverance in startups.

I grew up in a small town in France. I left my country at 18 years old on my own to get out of my comfort zone, to discover new cultures and new ways of thinking. I still have a long way to go on that journey.
