The mastermind behind our enterprise, Martin-Luc, concocts and engineers seamless business strategies that cause our mouths to fall open – more often than not – during meetings. Having sharpened his visionary approaches on more than a few online businesses, he enthusiastically seeks and shapes everything into fast: turnovers, entrepreneurs, executions, and automobiles. Open and receptive to all things entrepreneurial, he is one of the investors behind Montreal Start Up and is always excited to brainstorm and talk about business with anyone. He attributes his farsighted intelligence to daily nibbles of dark chocolate.
Olivier joined Planbox (a SaaS agile project management company) as CEO in late 2011. He has 10 years of leadership with high-growth software companies. He is a co-founder of Bolidea, a privately-funded and thriving technology incubator which also makes occasional seed investments.
Prior to founding Bolidea, Olivier co-founded CDT inc. a technology holding that operated an industry-leading web publishing and advertising platform as well as high-traffic search properties. It was eventually sold to 180 Solutions, which subsequently became the largest desktop advertising software company on the Web. The technology built by CDT and 180 Solutions remains and is now owned by a publicly traded company (BLNX:LON).
Entrepreneur since age 6, when he ran a parent-backed lemonade stand, Olivier continuously looks at life through the entrepreneurial opportunities it offers. He’s passionate about starting up, growing and scaling businesses.
Magali adds another stratosphere to the word super-organized. Like a queen bee in an overflowing, industrious beehive, she efficiently ordains the flow of product-related processes, documents and information. Quick-witted, imaginative and opinionated, she is the de facto “organizational dominatrix” of Bolidea. With a background in communications, she has worked in the realm of product management and marketing, successfully bringing numerous online web products to life. A fervent environmentalist, she has introduced compost and recycling programs to our offices.
