Hello. I am Etienne.

I have been interested in Technology and Venture Capital (VC) since writing this research.

I really like Bitcoin, privacy related topics and capital markets. Sometimes I write about these on Medium.Β More rarely, I give talks at Oxford University and work with great people there on research around blockchain. I also try to sound smart and witty on Twitter. But I often fail at this.

Since mid 2015, I have been working as an investor focus on Fintech and Capital markets with a strong emphasis on crypto related topics. If you are building anything related to crypto capital markets, bitcoin or the broader crypto network. Do reach out to me via Twitter.

I started working as a Fintech VC in London at Illuminate Financial, the largest Capital Markets Venture Fund backed by Deutsche Boerse and IHS Markit. I then moved as head of principal investment to the largest European crypto investment firm called Elwood, affiliated with Brevan Howard, macro hedge fund.

Always keen to contact with people in crypto and quant finance. Just DM me on Twitter or email me.

I am also running the largest European weekly newsletter on the European Crypto ecosystem. Sign up!

You can see some work references with startups I have invested in, advised and mentored on my AngelList.

I am based in πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί and I am sometimes in πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ.

I have a Yashica and take sometimes some pictures with my friends. I think people should watch less Netflix and watch more Godard.

My favourite emoji is πŸ™Š
