After graduating from Centrale Paris, Ambre interned at Theodo as a web developer.

She went on to work on modernizing the French public sector as part of the “Entrepreneur d’Intérêt Général” program for 10 months, putting her experience and skills to good use. In a continuing search to contribute to society, Ambre joined Lalilo in December 2018 to revolutionize education using technology to make learning to read easier for students.

After graduating from École Polytechnique, Laurent sharpened his entrepreneurial skills at UC Berkeley.

After his return to France he created Lalilo with two schoolmates of his with the aim of fighting academic failure by providing children with a personalised path to reading.

Caroline is a Celsa graduate. She joined Lalilo after 15 years in Marketing and Communication at traditional companies. She discovered the social economy ecosystem in early 2019 while working as a volunteer.

Formé au management de l’édition (ESCP-Asfored) après un Master en sciences humaines (ENS Cachan), Pascal a plus de 10 ans d’expérience dans plusieurs groupes d'édition (Studyrama, Reed Elsevier, Lefebvre Sarrut, etc.).

With her diverse international experiences and open mindset, Anh decided to couple HR with education and joined Lalilo where she can contribute to a meaningful mission: help kids learn to read.

Her favorite thing about Lalilo? Going to the classroom and seeing kids smile and excited about reading thanks to Lalilo.

Hugo est développeur et responsable du recrutement dev. Issu d’une famille de professeurs, il a naturellement rejoint Lalilo après ses études car l’éducation est un sujet d’une importance forte pour lui.

Il a rejoint ce projet pour deux raisons. La première est sa conviction qu’un apprentissage différencié est la clé pour permettre à chaque enfant de progresser, d’atteindre ses objectifs et concrétiser ses rêves. La seconde est l’environnement de travail que Lalilo essaye de mettre en place pour tous ses collaborateurs. Il se veut bienveillant, basé sur la confiance et la responsabilisation de tous les employés, et Hugo souhaite participer à la construction de ce modèle d’entreprise nouveau. L’importance de développer un produit qui a un impact sur l’éducation lui tient à coeur. Il ne croît pas à la tech “pour la tech” comme on voit trop aujourd’hui selon lui, il pense qu’elle doit être utilisée pour le bien commun.


Lalilo is a virtual assistant which helps educators teach primary school students how to read.

The startup was launched in 2016 by 3 engineers from École Polytechnique, with the goal of ending illiteracy with AI. In France 20% of the students who graduate from elementary school (collège) can't read proficiently enough to keep up with the academic demands of the classroom. In the U.S, that number goes up to 30%.

By providing individualised learning to students they want to drive that number down to 0.

To reach this goal, they have brought together experts in pedagogy, teachers, designers and technologists who work hand in hand to build the best classroom tools for students and educators.
