JÉRÔME VASAMILLET, CAIA
Jérôme started his career in two technology and finance startups in Brussels after finishing his Masters in Business Engineering at the Solvay Business School in Belgium. The first focused on developing Text Mining solutions for medical, media and financial companies. Strong from the experience of raising funds from public and private sectors for this startup, the team launched a second activity which provided Financial Advisory services for other startups & SMEs (later becoming a Venture Capital fund investing in European early stage companies solving societal issues, linked to a crowdfunding platform).
Seeking to focus on finance and technology while being in an environment where he can fully live his passion for various sports, Jérôme moved to Switzerland in 2011, where he worked in Asset and Wealth Management while always keeping a foot in technology and intra/entrepreneurial initiatives.
In 2016, he started co-organizing the Startup Weekend Fintech Geneva events as a volunteer (a Techstars program powered by Google for Entrepreneurs), seeking to contribute to the development of Switzerland as a FinTech hub in collaboration with other associations, academic bodies, startups and corporates.
