Jonathan discusses various topics in detail, including:
– His experience in M&A and fundraising, especially for companies like Deezer, during his time at Merrill Lynch and Rocket Internet in the Philippines.
– Why he turned down an offer from McKinsey upon returning to France in 2015 and was pursued by a partner at Idinvest.
– How Jonathan focuses on #SeriesA investments, occasionally #Seed and Series B, primarily in the consumer and B2B enterprise sectors, particularly cybersecurity.
– The importance of following people instead of just pursuing specific goals.
– The three criteria Jonathan uses to identify the potential of a founding team, including their culture and ability to surround themselves with the right people.
– The benefits of being open-minded without preconceived sector-specific beliefs.
– His approach as a board member, and much more (including the possible impact of Covid19 on funding and how to become a VC).
