Director and CEO of Trackener
My startup Trackener is my employer (we are 6 employees in total). I am my own boss.
An engineer turned entrepreneur, passionate about new sensors and technologies.
I grew up in Paris and then moved to London 4 years ago. I’ve been riding and taking care of horses all my life, which is why I started the company Trackener, helping to detect and prevent health issues in horses with technology.
I love playing tennis as well and spending time with my friends and family.
I'm the founder and director of Trackener, revolutionising horse care with technology. I make sure everything is going well in the product development so that the customers are happy with the product!
After finishing my engineering studies, I started working on the idea of a technology to avoid health problems in horses. I had horses with too many health issues in the past and was fascinated by all the new technologies coming out. This is how Trackener is born.
Trackener Life is an intelligent 24/7 horse monitoring solution helping advance equine health and welfare. Worn by the horse round the clock, Trackener provides unique insights about activity, movement, sleep, anxiety, heart rate and exercise sessions on an app. By learning from each and every horse, Trackener helps detect and prevent health problems.
My Typical Day
Doing various things to manage the business
My days at work are very diverse. In the same day I can discuss the development of the app with our engineers, look for new people to join the team, meet potential partners for the business or even do the accounting!
I love the fact that every day is different when you manage a business.
The part I like the most is to be able to still contribute to technical discussions about the product development thanks to my engineering knowledge and that I meet amazing people.
The part I like the least is to have admin tasks like the accounting.
What I'd do with the money
Doing workshops about coding electronic devices
I would buy some electronic prototyping equipment (arduino etc) to do some workshop in schools about starting to code some electronic devices.
