Yohann Melamed - Agorize

Chief Operations Officer

Passionate about new technologies and entrepreneurship, Yohann dreamed of setting up his own company ever since he was 13. After creating a number of websites, he attended Télécom ParisTech then HEC Paris. During his studies, he took part in several competitions, winning €1000 as well as a trip to Silicon Valley, where he met some of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs. The trip only reinforced his desire to become an entrepreneur himself. As well as the prizes he won, Yohann also used the competitions to build his first professional network, and gained experience that he thinks taught him much more than his 6 years of studies did.

At the age of 23, 10 years after his dream was born, he decided to go for it. He set up his company, Agorize, with 2 other students he met on his multi-disciplinary programme that brought together engineering, business and design students. Their aim was to share the truly enriching experience they had on their course, helping as many people as possible to meet others with complementary profiles, innovate together and collaborate with the world’s biggest companies.
