An entrepreneur at heart, Vincent launched many successful companies before co-founding FrenchFounders in 2014 alongside Benoit Buridant, in New York where he used to live.
Vincent has always been driven by networking initiatives, with a clear ambition to accompany entrepreneurial transformations (based on collaborations, international outlooks, innovation, purpose and impact) with the help of a - digital and physical - platform that helps generate business relationship opportunities for senior executives. Decompartmentalization, trust, mutual help and ambition prevail as much internally as they do externally.
Vincent moved back to Europe in 2018 but his initial ambition for FrenchFounders has remained strong and continues to grow day by day!
