LUCAS LE BELL
CEO – CERBAIR
By joining CERBAIR, I decided to carry my own project on a subject that not only fascinated me but also for which I saw an extremely promising market.
Today more than ever, I realize how difficult it is to undertake, so I am delighted to have been able to do this in a privileged environment, accompanied by a structure very formative, experienced and responsible.
Leaving a large group to join a small start-up company, one quickly understands the importance of the quality and cohesion of the men and women who compose it. I am lucky to be surrounded by talented people at Technofounders, enabling me to learn and progress very quickly, moreover in a relaxed atmosphere, so why deprive yourself?
