I've been working for 17 years in the incubation industry, in France and in the US:
- co-founding and running incubators in Paris and in Sophia-Antipolis,
- developing a soft-landing acceleration program in the US on behalf of the French Government, helping startups from all over the US interested in partenring with French R&D, and willing to expend their innovative projects towards Europe
- serving as board member in various regional and national associations related to economic and business development (RETIS, EBN, etc.)
- teaching entrepreneurship and innovation (French and English lectures) to PhD's, Master & Bachelor degrees since 2003.
I now act as Expert advisor and evaluator for the European Commission on Research & Innovation actions linked with SMEs.
As independent expert I am now offering services to launch, develop and internationalize entrepreneurial programs (e.g., incubators, business plan competitions, investment communities...).
My clients and partners are based in Europe, US and Chile. I've been involved with EBN in the Startup Europe - WeHubs project aiming at developing the First European Network of Women Web Entrepreneurs Hubs on behalf of InterInnov SAS (French company dedicated to community building and internationalization partnership mainly in the future internet and digital economy).
