Gaëtan is a French entrepreneur who, at the age of 24 in Sydney (Australia), created his first company, Do IT Right, specialised in pooling IT resources for SMEs. This initial experience opened the doors to the world of collaboration for him. In 2001, convinced that “working together” is more effective for entrepreneurs, he created PME Centrale in Lyon, with its first four members. His years of involvement with the Centre des Jeunes Dirigeants (CJD), he was president of CJD Lyon and vice-president of CJD International, helped him create his vision for the company. Since 2012, he is a founding member of the “Club du Cerf”, a group of business leaders who invest in projects for the development of SMEs and start-ups.
Speaker on the topic of the collaborative economy in France and around the world, he is also the author, along with Antoine Pivot, of the book “Together We Go Further – How the Collaborative Economy Can Inspire You to Succeed” (Éditions Alisio, 2016).
Gaëtan is now President of Qantis, the pioneering B2B collaborative platform, and PME Centrale, the first of its subsidiaries.
