After completing a master's degree in finance at Paris Dauphine University, Thibault joined the Grande Ecole program at Essec with the vision to create his own company. Whilst completing a market study requested by one of his professors, Thibault met Serge, the owner of a restaurant in Val d'Oise. He agreed to answer Thibault's questions and asked him if he would help update the photographs of his restaurant on various websites that were important for his business. Thibault gladly accepted but soon realized how difficult yet necessary it was to do this type of work on multiple sites. That's when the idea of Partoo was born.
Since then, Partoo has evolved a lot...Convinced that the company he created can become the benchmark application around the world to help stores increase their revenue thanks to digital, Thibault loves working on new ideas for features that will make a difference in the future.
When not working on the development and growth of Partoo, Thibault regularly plays squash and football while maintaining his passion for hiking.
