email #1 — the space I’m working in

As many new friends joined my newsletter and asked if they could access the previous emails online I will be posting each email update here. I will post them after having emailed them but not sure how long after, subscribe to make sure you get them if you like. I’m trying to send something new every week.


As I’m writing this 2,000 friends in 24 hours opted-in to receive this. Thank you for your time and interest. It’s a little intimidating but I won’t be intimidated and write this myself as if I were just emailing you as a friend.

I’m not trying to change the World, launch the new Facebook (there is already one and it’s great) or be the next Elon Musk (he’s amazing). I’m just trying to start something I love and bootstrap it for now.

Finding an idea is key. Most entrepreneurs never start anything becausethey’re waiting for a revolutionary idea. I’m trying to do the opposite here and not be revolutionary. I’m just trying to be aware of what I love doing, what I’m good at, and do it well. I’m paying attention to problems I could solve.

I invited thousands of speakers to speak at the conference I co-founded, LeWeb, over 12 years. I love doing that. I love discovering great people. I love finding and talking to leaders and new talents who do amazing things.

I don’t have my startup idea yet. I have a space though, it’s great people doing amazing things. I’m going to focus on this and see where it leads me. I am not trying to do something huge. I want to build something helpful and that I am proud of. The rest is secondary. I might end up building something totally different. What matters is to start building and constantly adapting.

Finding amazing people to speak has never been easy, I have spent countless hours on the web and participated in hundreds of conferences such as TED, The lobby, Summit, Davos to meet incredible people.

I am working on something very small.

A place to discover amazing people doing extraordinary things. I am very excited about it.

I am thankful you want to read about it and possibly help, I will need it and I hope it’s going to be as exciting for you as it is for me.

more very soon
