You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Web Development • Entrepreneurship • data mining • Web 2.0 • Software project management

Key Accomplishments

I am a software engineer which have jumped into entrepreneurship pushed by a passion to build things.

I have build an extensive experience about web and mobile projects, one of our applications reached 180k unique users: http://musicloopapp.com/ (old looking site). Some projects also let me build skills about scalability: an advertising platform and a major business intelligence application aggregating billions of records. I have also worked on one data science project aiming to improve some hardware system abilities.

That being said I have cumulated with purely business related topics: partnership development (which was one of my primary goal at MyScienceWork), online marketing but also project and product management. I work in a structured way, driving projects toward clear decisions and goals and providing my partners with the feedback they need to feel engaged in the overall target.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I value ownership and autonomy as much as team work. Which mean that I think it is important that everybody knows which task is managed by who and that everybody does what it takes to achieve those goals. That being said I also value team interactions that are able to raise new ideas, trigger creative problem solving or simply validate proposed solutions.

As an Advisor

I like to do regular meeting to assess what have been done, what are the current questions.

I am usually more focus about the questions than their answers, I try to help people ensure that they are working on the right thing and that they have a clear picture about where the risk lies. I don't like long talks and try to be more focus about one or two key problems to keep the things focused and effective.

Think Fräntz is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Rémi Menegon
They're my friends  •  Consultant Sécurité des TI, NCI Secured Intelligence. Previously Fondateur / CSO / Project Manager, KenaGard.
Fräntz is a talented and experienced entrepreneur and has a nice personality. His great mastery of both information technology and interper ... sonal communications allows him to directly interact with the market while thinking formally to the technology needed for a project. Whether to give a lecture, conduct a meeting, create new algorithms or write clever and optimized code, Frantz is always the first responder. We founded our first startup a few years ago and I loved working with him.
Peadar Coyle
They're my friends  •  Technical Consultant, Manning Publications Co. and Data Analyst, A-SYST.
Frantz was very helpful in getting Data Science meetups and other events off the ground in Luxembourg. His understanding of technology is ex ... cellent and he has insight into the industry that would envy a much more experienced techie.
Baptiste
We worked together
Frantz knows how to listen and is well surrounded. He is resourceful, can code, can market, can design, can finance. He "would" not be a gre ... at entrepreneur, he IS a great entrepreneur.
Pierrick ARNAULT
They're my school  •  Performance Analyst, BNP Paribas Securities Services. Previously Business Analyst, BNP Paribas Securities Services.
I now know Fräntz for a while. Always thought he was intelligent and capable of doing great things. A few months ago, when enjoying a start ... up weekend together on a project he had presented, he didn't make us understand he was the leader. He was the NATURAL leader. Everyone in the team liked him as a leader and as a person. Intelligent, thoughtful, he is also very friendly. He has this set of qualities i've always imagined for a great leader and entrepreneur.
Alexandre Agular
They're my school  •  Software Engineer, Top10.com. Previously Software Engineer, Football Radar Ltd.
I have worked with Fräntz for a couple of years, we co-founded KenaGard, a web and mobile phone application development service company. Fr ... äntz was the CEO of this company. I think his common sense, perfectionism and wide area of interests make him capable of handling all aspects of managing a small company, not only the technical parts. On the engineering side, he has good / very good knowledge on the full stack of technologies required to build and maintain a web application and is always learning something new. Also, he has good general knowledge, and an interest for people and solving their problems which I think are important traits for someone that wants to build new services to offer to the public.
Dan Forest-Barbier
They're my friends  •  R&D Software Engineer, Criteo. Previously R&D Software Engineer, MyScienceWork.
Fräntz is motivated and goal-driven. He is able to push his projects and colleagues (I've worked with him before we became friends) in the ... right direction — the one which gets things done on time while keeping things realistic and maintainable. I believe his technical know-how and commercial skills will be an advantage to his partners in future endeavours.
Jean-Philippe Costa Mota
They're my school  •  Worked , Worked , .
As I undertook my own endeavor I learnt how to distinguish intelligent people who would have astonishing careers among big corporations and ... people as talented who would devote their skills to create something even though the path would be full of question marks. Frantz is one of those persons who has been focusing himself on being an entrepreneur no matter how many great corporate opportunities were presented to him. He is an engineer with all the analytical skills that come along, but is also tremendously gifted with soft skills. He can understand his environment with a high degree of accuracy. He is a natural entrepreneur!
Marina THIRIET-ANDRIEU
We worked together  •  Managing Director (présidente de l'ASBL), Girls in Tech Luxembourg and Community Project Manager, The Impactory Luxembourg.
Fräntz is extremely knowlegeable about the startup and tech world. His experience as an entrepreneur and COO of a successful startup make h ... im a really credible advisor. Fräntz is a well-rounded entrepreneur and his engineering background allow him to have a full understanding of the business. Furthermore Fräntz is great communicator and also give back to the community being involved as a volunteer coach/ speaker at several in digital education events.

Jean-Paul Forest, PhD
They're my professor  •  Teacher, EISTI.
As my undergraduate student, Fräntz showed both the capacity to understand theoretical questions as well as applying them to practical prob ... lems. I am confident his drive will allow him to cope with any problem entrepreneurship might throw his way.

Pierrick ARNAULT
They're my school  •  Performance Analyst, BNP Paribas Securities Services. Previously Business Analyst, BNP Paribas Securities Services.
I met Pierrick in engineering school, he was a smart and curious student. We recently got closer after Pierrick discussed with me about his ... projects and we worked together at a Startup Weekend. Pierrick knows where he wants to head while being open and always seeking to improve through discussion. I have seen Pierrick approaching his new venture in a very pragmatic way, he is on the right track to become a great entrepreneur!

Alexandre has some very strong software engineering and computer science skills and combines them with a strong interest in product developm ... ent. We cofounded KenaGard together where Alexandre demonstrated a strong ability to manage our team and communicate efficiently with our partners and customers. Today, he is one of my advisors at KonnectR and I strongly recommend his skills and commitment as strong assets in entrepreneurial ventures.
