Mentor and advisor to a few thoughtfully selected startups, Philippe is also a partner in Senseii Ventures, a seed stage venture capital fund started and owned by 20 entrepreneurs. In both ventures, his combined knowledge of the ecosystem of startups and that of the corporate world is one of his most formidable assets.
