My name is Simon Lehelley. I’m 25 years old and come from France. I have done my bachelor degree in political science in Versailles University in 2014. I also studied two years in communication before.
Last year, I decided to go in Los Angeles to have an international experience in an English language school and discover a new culture. I stayed six months in a host family to live completely the American culture and share experience with people who comes from all over the world.
It has to say it was also a great experience to discover what I always wanted to do: entrepreneurship. Indeed, there is a different culture where people like to create something new and take risk which is much less the case in Europe.
Also, I’m involved in a non profit organization for finding funds in the medical field.

My name is David Provoost, I am a 24 years old French guy young graduate from engineering school in 2015. I am an electronical engineer specialized in embedded systems. I have done my graduation internship of engineering school at Altran Technologies in Strasbourg, in electronical development and electronical conception of medical imaging.
After my engineering diploma I wanted to learn more about companies in general in order to get a dual expertise in both technique and management. The reason why I enrolled myself at ISG after 5 years of engineering school is simple. The technical experiences I’ve had, either at school or in a company, made me work with a product on a concrete project, but never beyond that. It is totally normal, but it was then very frustrating to create something you know very well and not follow its evolution once it could be launched on the market.
