“Timing, perseverance, and ten years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.” - Biz Stone (founder of twitter)
We are an open minded and international team, based in paris. We help reducing climate change by doing what we do best. We basically find problems… and try to fix them. We operate in a still small environment where any individual has the leverage to build meaningful relationships with like-minded peers, both in ambition and hard work and measured by small series of accomplishments with impact in the back of our minds.
