I have known Didier for 15 years+ First, we worked together at a leading startup that had just gone public, then I was a technical advisor ... for a startup he led as CEO, then he has been the leading business advisor for a startup I co-founded, since inception in 2010 until today. Didier has a wide and solid background with all business aspects of high-tech companies working with leading edge technologies. He is one of the brightest and most resourceful business people I have ever known. Didier supported my company in different aspects, from introducing us to key business partners such as important suppliers, to actively participating in interactions with financing institutions, strategic business partners such as global semiconductors companies, to marketing and sales channels. Didier has a very pleasant personality, and we continue to enjoy working with him. I therefore recommend him very highly as a top-notch, world-class, business advisor and mentor.
