VC focused on building global European IT companies
Based in Paris (France), I'm a managing Partner of Occam Capital with over 20 years of experience in the IT industry in the US and in Europe.
Most recently I was a General Partner and CTO of RVC, the manager of the Reuters Greenhouse Fund, the Corporate VC arm of Reuters. At RVC we were instrumental in some of the most profitable European transactions with ID2 (Sold to Sonera), MetaMerge (Sold to IBM), Orchestream (LSE IPO), Fantastic corporation (Neue Merk IPO), Tradeum (Sold to VerticalNet), Moreover (Sold to Verisign) , WhereOnEarth (Sold to Yahoo) as the Greenhouse fund was invested in 82 companies and generated 16 IPOs and more than 30 trade sales. Before that I was involved both as an entrepreneur and senior executive in Technology and Product Management in large and small technology companies: Renaissance Software (Sold to SunGard) , Rational Software (sold to IBM for $2.1B), Thales-Syseca (Paris) , KMPG-Nolan Norton (Palo Alto) and Reuters (London).
I started Occam Capital in 2004 to build a private equity group that would support the European IT innovation community, and deliver superior return to its investors. After more than 15 years away from France, I 'm now back in Paris where I live with my wife and three children.
