We are today with Jérémy Simah Co-founder of Datalents and the Paris Blockchain Week Summit :
- Can you present your background and activities?
I started my career at Microsoft in Paris before landing an internship for the White House in Washington D.C. to develop the Global Business Angel Network (G.B.A.N) and to organize the Global Entrepreneurship Summit for Barack Obama in 2014.
During my master at UC Berkeley in California, I met my first mentor Alexandra Vogel who helped me to land my dream job at LinkedIn in Dublin.
Ireland was not my first destination after school but getting a Visa to the US was not an easy thing and I was nicely surprised with the authenticity of the Irish people and their affection for finding any good reason to start a Happy Hour!
I was working as an Account Executive at LinkedIn. I joined the 500M+ members’ professional network through the Business Leadership Program which to help LinkedIn achieve its mission of connecting the world’s professionals and making them more productive and successful.
When I came back to Paris, I launched Datalents with Elie Ohayon and our HR-Tech startup co-organize the biggest Blockchain conference in Europe: Paris Blockchain Week.
