I was born and raised in France but my fathers' parents were Russian immigrants. I am bilingual French-English. I can read Russian and manage conversations in Russian to some level (I lack practice). I have traveled 6 times to Russia and I have been to many Eastern European countries as well. I have a keen interest in the Russian culture and high-tech scene.

I teach business and innovation strategy at engineering schools and I spent 2 years mentoring 2 French startups. I participate in several startup selection jurys in France. I enjoy very much putting my business experience at the service of entrepreneurs to help them gain a better understanding of their market, improve their business and sales strategies, identify strategic partners, and also better communicate with their partners and to the market place. I expect a harmonious and transparent relationship with my mentee company

Интересны стартапы:

It can be a very early stage startup with not much more than a concept or a first prototype. It can be a more mature company which has strategic issues to sort out in order to grow further and internationalize. it can be a company in a lot of trouble that needs to pivot and reinvent itself. The mentee company must be involved with some form of digital services because this is the domain I have the most expertise in
