I graduated with a Master in Business and Management from HEC Paris, the #1 Business School in Europe according to the Financial Times. I started my career in finance in mergers and acquisition and private equity where I encountered a lot of fintech and insurtech entrepreneurs.
I then moved to New York to work in Business Development in a startup in the streaming technology space. That’s where I really nurture my appeal for entrepreneurship. I decided to do a Master in entrepreneurship between the best engineering school in France (Ecole Polytechnique) and UC Berkeley where I met my co-founder. I then co-founded Skypher a startup in cybersecurity located in San Francisco and Paris. We did the Winter 2020 batch of Y Combinator in San Francisco and just closed our first funding round. We are now growing very fast and hiring across the board. Our mission is to help tech companies become more secure organizations while removing the huge amount of unnecessary pain and busywork involved in cybersecurity compliance.
I have deep expertise in cybersecurity, machine learning, business development and Go-to-Market strategy, investor relation and raising money from top VCs.
