Professional life is built on encounters. I met Vincent at the end of 2011, through a mutual friend, and especially, through our shared passion for Trail running (Vincent also did the Grand Raid de la Réunion, and numerous other ultra trail races). At the moment I was looking for additionnal support to lead Raidlight, and Vincent wanted to find a job position with an entrepreuneurial mindset and related to his passion. Three months later, he had sold his house the Paris region, was joining Raidlight-Vertical to assist me for the leadership, and invested in 25% of Raidlight-Vertical’s capital.
Complementary ground : I am in charge ofthe creativity, image, innovation, marketing, communication, while Vincent is in charge of management, finances, operational strategies and sales.
Common ground : move quickly, take measured risks with fast decision making process, and finally, love of both Trail running and entrepreneurship.
We are not engaged (!), but we became true partners. Eight years of entrepreneurial work together allowed us to know each other and we are able today, to work in full confidence and complicity combining our skills. We truly became a well-functioning and complementary team, and we see no reason to change a winning team for our next adventures…
