Ambroise de La Gorce
Founded 1 startup
I’m an entrepreneur who worked with multi-millions startups in Europe, after a scientific baccalaureat and 7 year studies (electronic engineering + business).
My profile and background are oriented towards sales and marketing (B2C & B2B) with 4+ years of senior management : CEO (tech startup – Dublin) and CMO (property development – London).
In 2016, I founded RecoHero, with the vision to digitalise word-of-mouth referrals for e-commerce businesses worldwide, in order to make the online purchase process more reliable, interactive and rewarding.
I am also mentoring early-stage startups and assisting businesses as senior B2B business development consultant.
