Hugues Lalancette

Head of Growth

I studied finance and economics, but fell in love with tech and the people driving change. To my own surprise, I’ve discovered a future where data and engineers rule the universe. In this bright new world, ideas evolve at an unprecedented speed and emerge from first-principle thinking, not from pre-existing paradigms. I’ve learned that the very notion of product-market fit is being reinvented everyday. This constant state of flux that exists between people and ideas is where I strive to spend the most days. I work with entrepreneurs and their financial gurus in helping them into the inovia rocketship and then focus on leveraging all the learnings from our network to accelerate how startups scale. I wake up thinking it’s a real privilege to work in this space.

Something that keeps me up at night, in a good way… is the Force.

Venture-backed businesses thrive because they obsess about customers.

inovia founders are special because they can see the future and make it happen.

I stay intellectually honest because of Nemesis, the goddess of retribution and downfall.
