What did you do before the factory?
I spent 4 years at Goldman Sachs as an Associate in the Leveraged Finance team. I was in charge of helping retail companies to raise bonds and loans in the financial markets. I also had the opportunity to work in a mid-cap private equity fund in Paris (Weinberg Capital Partners). I graduated from EMLYON Business School and from East China Normal University (Shanghai). I am originally from South of France (Toulouse).
What do you do at the factory?
As business development lead I help partner the best startups around the world with the Factory's corporate investors and other corporate partners in my network. This involves helping position startup use cases, identifying and making introductions to the the right industry partners and designing ways for our ecosystem partners to work together. My focus is on beauty, fashion and retail.
What makes you a good founder?
Passion and dedication.
