Empowering innovative companies to scale through strategy and execution





Over the past 3 years, I managed the operations at Ecofuel, a platform including a seed fund and an accelerator specifically dedicated to support entrepreneurs in creating solutions for a greener tomorrow through clean technologies. Following that experience, I decided to be more hands-on and help entrepreneurs and tech startups/scaleups to grow their business through effective strategies and by actually helping companies to execute them. My main focus is on business development and international expansion. I also aim to support companies that offer impactful solutions that can improve our world and whose values align with mine.

I have over 16 years of experience in entrepreneurship, business development and strategic consulting and I have worked directly in various industries such as cleantech, mobility, manufacturing, health & wellness, entertainment, education, non-profit organisations and economic development. I also have an appetite to learn about new industries and business models. 


So far, I have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs at different growth stages and worked in multiple countries on mandates such as commercial expansion, capacity building and implementing an entrepreneurial ecosystem. Over the past 8 years, I have taught classes and given conferences on a wide variety of business subjects and I have done so in English, French and Spanish.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in International Business and a MSc in Organizational Development, both earned at Eastern Michigan University, where I was named twice to the ESPN Academic All-American NCAA Division I football team. I also hold an MBA from HEC Montreal.
