In 2012, wanting to promote debate on how the internet is politically, economically and socially reshaping the world, he founded the podcast Convergence Numerique where he published content four years. 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. Tip: Don't throw too many good ideas at him, he would really try to do them all.
