Summary

In the first episode, the two researcher-entrepreneurs we interviewed compare the challenges of research and entrepreneurship. While research seeks to provide an answer to a physical or mathematical problem, entrepreneurship provides solutions to real-world needs. Faced with the risks and various unknowns that entrepreneurship involves, Gaël Matten and Théau Peronnin emphasise their ambition to bring a new and revolutionary project to the daily lives of people. They are accompanied by the RISE programme of CNRS Innovation, which supports researcher-entrepreneurs through the different stages of creating a company, in making the leap towards creating a start-up.

Gaël Matten is the co-founder and CEO of Vibiscus, a company that is developing and marketing an innovative and programmable material to reduce ambient noise in open spaces. This acoustic process has gone through many technological advances before Vibiscus was created to distribute this innovation to the general public.

Théau Peronnin is co-founder and CEO of Alice&Bob, a start-up designing a universal quantum computer that delivers unprecedented and error-free computing power. In a new market where everything has yet to be achieved, they will try to compete with giants like Google and IBM.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
