My name is Sébastien Derivaux and I got two passions : data science and startups.
After a PhD in Data science, I worked for many companies in insurance, banking and video games (I’m credited in some Blizzard Entertainment games, how cool is that ?). My specific niche is to build high end analytics from scratch and extract insights that can help the business. I like to get things done.
After coming back in Strasbourg, France in 2012, I started to get involved in the startup ecosystem, as a Business Angels with Alsace Business Angels, and fostering the digital startup ecosystem with Alsace Digitale. Being shareholder and board member of many startups (like Kwit, Epopia, Fizimed, WhiteQuest, PrixDeGros.com), I figure out firsthand that analytics are key to raise funds and achieve business sucess.
It makes sense to focus on using my competencies to helps startups to grow. That’s what DataIntoResults.com is all about.
