Jérôme Stioui

Operating Partner

I got into entrepreneurship at 23 when I was a student at HEC and since then I had the opportunity to be CEO and co-founder of 3 start-ups Directinet (acquired by IPT), Ad4Screen (acquired by ProDirect Group) & Accengage (acquired by Airship). And with all of them I went through fundraising roadshows, pivots, high growth phases, M&A, internationalisation… and finally exits! Following my first exit, in 2007, I was lucky to become an Executive Board Member of a company listed on the London Stock Exchange. I was in charge of to the acquisition of an e-mail marketing software company and discovered then the beauty of SaaS models.

After my third exit in 2019 came that existential question: “what’s next?”, so I decided to share the best practices as well as mistakes I had made along the way as independent board member or advisor of various start-ups and mentor at HEC Incubator & Wilco Accelerator. I was also pleased to serve as Member of 1st French National Digital Council.

I got to know Amelie Faure through a common connection and was impressed by “ the Operating Team Approach ” she had put in place at Serena. During my 20-years life as entrepreneur, I had worked with ten plus VC funds: all of them promised me support and operational help, but in practice it was not happening so actively..!

At Serena, I am in charge of providing operational support to the founders & C-levels of portfolio companies in order to help them become their best self when it comes to execution and operational efficiency.
