About Me

There are several key skill sets that allow me to act as a mentor and guide for other startups.

My technical background has always been fueled by my curiosity and passion for learning. This gives me the tools to transform ideas into reality, and to play within the boundaries of financial and technological resources.

My management experience is rooted in a person’s value and the importance of human resources. I have worked in banking and helped a company of 500 to industrialize their tools in order to improve the staff’s efficiency and the business’ overall ROI.

 

As an entrepreneur myself, I get it. We want and expect certain things, and need to know certain others. We must be void of ego because we get better when we nitpick our own work and constantly improve it, that’s our key to success.

I’ll be up front about my knowledge, but rest assured. If I don’t know something, there is a good chance that I already know someone who does, and if not, I have the resources to get someone new. 

My past

In my youth, I wanted to be an inventor. That early desire led me to study computer science and electronics. While my friends were exercising their Playstation agility, I was writing code and tuning my Linux kernel.

In 2011, I launched my first startup. While it didn’t reach the success that I was hoping, it did teach me what not to do, and helped me better understand my strengths: my technical skills and IT management.

In 2014, I launched my second business as a startup CTO and consultant. By 2017, I have helped more than 60 startups in solving a variety of technical, organizational and planning issues, and I’m proud to say that that number continues to grow.

What I do

Using my experience and the lessons I’ve learned over time, I am sharing my knowledge through the blog and the online courses. This opportunity for continuing education allows founders to avoid some of the mistakes I have both seen and made.  Today I focus on 3 type of services :

 

  • Short mentoring session. (45min to 90min )
  • Fully dedicated product definition workshop. (2-3 days)
  • Conferences

How I do it

I’ve learned a lot since that first picture was taken. And now I want to spread that knowledge, I want to help founders avoid the mistakes I’ve seen (and made), and help them understand what it takes to be a founder. I’ve taken up this new challenge through my blog and online courses, where I act as a resource for what to do, what not to do, and how to avoid getting into difficult situations
