FLORENT DE GANTÈS
The best entrepreneurs I’ve worked with had the discipline, the grit, and the passion of athletes. The best athletes I’ve played with had the patience, the focus, and the organizational skills of corporate leaders. The best organizations I’ve been a part of had the drive, the energy, and the culture to support people far beyond their skillset.
An engineer by training, Florent started his career in corporate strategy and M&A, before returning to his engineering roots. He received an MBA from MIT Sloan and then joining Google in NYC as a product manager.
After building product organizations at Google and several scale-ups and startups in the US, he turned to entrepreneurship when moving back to France 4 years ago with his wife and 2 children.
Florent joined the team to deliver on Teampact’s community-driven investment strategy for early-stage companies.
Some of Florent's eccentric passions are fly fishing for wild trout in mountain streams, winning at table tennis (which he will never lower himself to calling ping pong), and losing at tennis.
Florent is our product expert, supporting product leaders at our portfolio companies and building our early stage portfolio.
