After working for 15 years in high performance computing in the financial industry, creating and investing in companies in different fields, I wanted to build something less abstract and impact positively people lives, for the long term.
Fabien is PhD in quantum physics, which by the way, has been selected by Springer as one of the best thesis in the world. Even he worked with the most famous physicists teams, he decided to quit public research to follow the entrepreneurship path.
We have met at Entrepreneur First, a combination of an incubator and an investor. It’s a simple principle:
twice a year they gather about 50 (very) technical and (very) business people. Eventually, pairs are formed in order to build deeptech companies.
When Google claimed they had reached Quantum supremacy, Alain sent their paper to the EF cohort. Only Fabien answered, very fast. He have never seen someone so enthusiastic and so smart.
Finding the good co-founder is pretty tough. Complementary skills, good understanding, mutual confidence and ambition is usually what we look for. Actually, one tends to forget that empathy and goodwill are keys for a long-term partnership.
This is exactly what Alain had found. It was a match.
So, how mixing a 15 years experience in high performance financial markets with a PhD in quantum physics legitimates our ambition ? The combination of our expertises is key to achieve our ambition: modeling real-life with mathematics and processing data in real-time . Even more important, innovating in healthcare is not just about medicine anymore. It’s a combination of many sciences and technologies, and a common work of teams from very different fields.
That’s how we work. With good partners, sharing our values with a crystal clear mission: saving lives.
