Hi ! My name’s Greg, from France. I am a climate investor, currently working at Meridiam – a leading $19+bn asset manager. I have spent the last 7 years looking for and investing in business models that make sense financially, environmentally and socially. Only at the intersection can change be durable. This has been my philosophy as I have helped many companies to navigate strategic moments, solve operational difficulties and implement ESG and impact tools.

While my job has given me so much experience, expertise and pleasure, I decided to start giving back a couple years ago by mentoring young entrepreneurs in various fields and coming from underrepresented minorities in France. More recently, I made up my mind to expand my horizons. I am enthusiastic about Africa, where I have traveled, volunteered and helped entrepreneurs. I have been a first-hand witness of the many talented people and great ideas generated there to tackle some of the biggest challenges of the continent. And yet resources lack when they shouldn’t.

If you are looking for a passionate and understanding mentor with relevant experience to accompany your impact-driven business, please get in touch !

Mentorship motivation

  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

Dear entrepreneur,
There are many challenges when launching a business and even more so in Africa where capital and infrastructure are not as present as in Europe. For this reason I’d like to support you to alleviate some of the pressure and to help you not repeat mistakes I have seen in the past. I bring venture capital expertise as well as mentoring experience, as I’ve helped several entrepreneurs in the past couple years launch their businesses.

The traditional areas where I would add the most value to your company are strategy, fundraising, reporting and finance. I have also spent a significant share of my time on ESG and impact, where I would be more than happy to accompany you. My intention is not to blindly serve you with generic advice and methods. One thing I have learned is that each company is different as each founder is different. And so my intention is to help you materialize your vision.
