// About eFounders

Since 2011 we have launched 13 startups, with more in the works. We build businesses from the ground up to invent the tools of tomorrow and inspire new ways of working. We build the future of work.

// Our founders

It all started in 2011, when two entrepreneurs met to outline a new model of entrepreneurship. The result is eFounders: a pioneering startup studio launching multiple startups each year.

// Thibaud Elzière, co-founder

Founder of Fotolia, a stock photo platform later sold to Adobe, Thibaud likes to tackle all business issues, bringing his product vision and go-to-market strategy to each new startup.

// Quentin Nickmans, co-founder

Quentin is a former top-tier consultant from the Boston Consulting Group and CEO of Eating Desk. His administrative, financial, and legal expertise are the backbone of eFounders’ success.

// Our studio

We partner up with exceptional founders to join us for a 12 month cycle. Based in Paris and Brussels, our team of 15 brings them their operational expertise to build the first version of the product and acquire the first clients.

// Our companies

So far, we’ve launched 13 independent companies, employing more than 400 people, and generating more than €30M in annual revenue.
