Why Software Club? I feel very fortunate to wake up everyday knowing that I'm working on a topic that I'm truly passionate about: rational long-term focused investing in software & technology. I feel lucky to collaborate with an outstanding bunch of people (both within the team & our members). And above all, the entrepreneurial dimension of building a company with a very high potential is exhilarating. I've found my match! What were you doing before Software Club? I've had two stages in my professional career so far. I first started in strategy consulting working with BCG after university. I cherish that experience, which I see now as a great preparation to real business life. For the past 5 years now, I've started my second life as an entrepreneur. I've been entirely focused on Software & Tech investing for over 4 years now, and love it more and more every day.
Why Software Club? I decided to join Software Club mainly for two reasons: first, I am very interested in investment and I wanted to be in a "next-gen" topic, which is software and technology. Second, I wanted to join a start-up where I could make a direct impact on the company and work on different topics in addition to investment research (HR, Finance, Commercial) that will help scale the company. What were you doing before Software Club? After graduating from HEC with a degree in Financial Management, I had opportunities to work for three different large organizations where I had a specific focus on financial services and then later, on digital transformation and innovation projects.
