On the show, we spoke about:

  • His need for intellectual stimulation and innovation

  • How startups and entrepreneurship help society
  • Joining BDC Capital’s industrial innovation fund

Guillaume has already had an impressive career but I get this feeling that he’s only just started. He shared some great insights that I hope you find as useful as I did.
