WiTHINK - le blog de WiSEED

Depuis plus de 8 ans maintenant, WiSEED démocratise l’investissement en permettant à des particuliers d’investir dans des actifs qui étaient jusque-là réservés à des privilégiés. Start-ups, projets immobiliers, sociétés coopératives… (et bien d’autres actifs dans les cartons qui vous seront présentés d’ici la fin de l’année). Notre cœur de métier et de sélectionner les meilleurs projets à proposer aux investisseurs désirant flécher leurs investissements et donner du sens à leur épargne. Pour faire connaître WiSEED, sa communauté d’optimistes, et apporter un peu de fraîcheur au milieu de la Finance , nous avons lancé l’opération #MaRecolte. En voici un petit bilan pour vous, WiSEEDers, investisseurs et curieux.

Another busy month, with news like the European soccer event (#Euro2016) and a European shocker decision (#Brexit2016) that made – and still make – he headlines.

I’ve also attended a number of ‘blockchain-for-crowdfunding’ meetings, which I may blog later about, and read some cool stuff.

Here’s some of the cool stuff, summarized for you in the traditional monthly digest. I hope that you share the interest.

More travel, more work, less time to read… but I still want to share my favorite reads of the month.

There is a lot of financial innovation in it : the expansion of equity crowdfunding in the US, the expectations and dissillusionment around blockchain, but also broader innovation project’s like self-driving cars and its impact on advertising. Here are eight articles that I thought were worth being shared in my monthly digest. Read more…

Very little time to write at the moment, but I did have time to read & watch some great content in April. My favorites include a documentary about crowdfunding, which is great in telling some entrepreneurs’ stories before/after they got massive funding from the crowd. There is also some advice for career choices around 30, a great Wired piece about VR pioneer Rony Abovitz or the State of Crowdsourcing 2016 report. Read more…

Meet Jörg, Hélène and our dog Nelson (excerpt from Airbnb’s video)

For #EarthDay2016, Airbnb France published this nice little video of the place my brother Maël and I grew up, in the heart of Brittany. The company chose to feature our house because my mom & step dad are not only successful Airbnb hosts, but also and foremost because they run the place in an environmentally friendly & respectful way. It’s in French, but you don’t need to understand the captions to see just how beautiful it is there.  Read more…

After more than 5 years at eYeka, which have taught me a lot about marketing, communication, creativity, crowds, earned me a Masters and a PhD… I am happy to share that I will be joining WiSEED, the world’s first equity crowdfunding platform, as Marketing & Communications Director.

The platform has been a pioneer since its inception (created in 2008, online in June 2009), first by creating the equity crowdfunding model, then by diversifying investment opportunities to real estate or cooperatives, and many exciting projects are in the pipeline. I will participate in building the brand, growing and scaling the business, improving the user experience, among other things.

It is an exciting time to join WiSEED, and I hope to keep empowering crowds with this new endeavor. Here is a short post about what equity crowdfunding is, and why I think it’s a really interesting model for the future of business.

March was an interesting month from a personal standpoint (more about that in a couple of days) but it also had its fair share of great reads!

Some of it is about the platform economy, praised in an article by the Financial Times to break glass ceilings, and some relate to entrepreneurs’s challenges, business funding or laundry advertisements (good ones!). And there is some Donald Trump too. I hope it’s interesting for you. Read more…
