Cedric Maloux

CEO, StartupYard

Product Marketing


Business Strategy

Having graduated as an engineer in Artificial Intelligence in the early 90’s, I have spent the last 27 years running Internet startups during good and bad times of the Internet economy. I excel at tuning business plans, defining product and market entry strategy, positioning, psychology, and e-business models.

I boot-strapped one company and sold it, saved 2 companies from bankruptcy, grew one company from 0 to millions of users  and raised Series-A funding with Index Ventures and Mangrove Capital Partners.

I now manage StartupYard where I select and later mentor teams on a daily basis. I am also an official Advisor to the French Ministry of Trade, a Digital Leader of Europe at the World Economic Forum, a Board Member at the French-Czech Chamber of Commerce and a Jury Member at MIT Innovators under 35 Europe.
