Having conducted more than 150 interviews, we can say for sure that he is passionate about people and getting things said. Vincent worked in the tech events industry, doing interviews, and creating live content for agencies and think tanks. In 2016, he joined France Digitale, a European lobby of startups and investors as Events & Communication Manager. He’s now in charge of spreading the good daphni vibes in the ecosystem.
