CEO

Charles is one of the three co-founders of Agorize. After attending secondary school in the Basque Country and university preparatory studies in Paris, he began his studies at HEC, where he set up a charity which produced films for NGOs around the world – V’idéaux, where he worked for a year. This experience encouraged him to specialize in digital technology, and he obtained a Master’s degree in Management and New Technologies in partnership with Télécom ParisTech. There he met his two current associates, with whom, in 2011, he founded Agorize, a startup that specializes in organizing online open innovation challenges. Charles is a fan of winter sports, and has previously taught as a ski instructor in the Pyrenees. He often comes to the office on a skateboard
