Partners for your next startup

We believe in people, technology and collaborative methods.

Think of us as a VC firm, but investing with tech execution. 

Our DNA is to build startups. That’s what we love. That’s what we do.

Our past startup projects lead us to takes another angle at the startup world. Most startups raise funds to hire developers and eventually give them some share to attract/retain the best of them. But what if you could skip the fund raising step and directly have a tech team?

We don’t believe in money. We believe in people. Money is useless without a capable team.

Because talented partners are rare, we stick together as a family and work on our startup portfolio. In our experience, fixed capital split lead to frustrations, so we make it evolve progressively with our respective contributions.

We don’t believe in distant relationships and controlling people. We are self-managed and whole.

Because outstanding team members are always surprisingly effective, multifaceted and faster than expected, we commit to a strictly open, caring and collaborative governance. We ensure our playground evolves organically with our members. 

With cocreation.studio, we all thrive to do good and make people smile.

I am an entrepreneur, strategy consultant and product craftsman. I studied engineering at Ecole Centrale de Paris and ULB. Because of my appetite for understanding businesses, I was a strategy consultant for 4 years at Bain & Company. Then I decided to create my own startups to pursue my desire to create applications myself and automate human intensive tasks with WiseRadar (with Olivier) and Sunday.

I am also a happy father, scuba diver and a foodie.

To expect: strategic perspective, user-centric design, coding, quantitative analysis
