As an investor, author and strategist, Laurent Haug guides industry leaders, startups and policy makers through the intricacies of emerging technologies and the larger social and economic changes that shape them.
Clients hire him to connect them to the people, capital, ideas and tools that will enhance and accelerate their projects.
Past engagements include business model and strategy definition, recruitment of digital teams, fundraising, organisation of discovery trips, corporate innovation and trends research projects.

Laurent is guided by the fundamental belief that change is always an opportunity as long as you anticipate it, that every single industry is and will be impacted by technological change, and that the future is made of a large diversity of actors, from world leading corporations to SMEs, from not-for-profits to startups.
