The Chartered Accountants of tomorrow!
#28 CSR: “It’s all in the FEC” | Jérôme Verdiell, abCSR [CSR Series]
Description of the episode
Welcome to this new episode of our CSR series. Today I am welcoming Jérôme Verdiell, founder of abCSR. VSEs-SMEs struggle to make time for CSR. But the reporting obligation will sooner or later end up falling on them! 😨 Hence the promise of abCSR: to transform accounting data (present in the FEC*) and social data (present in the DSN**) into concrete and communicative CSR indicators (example: sharing of value creation, exposure to supplier corruption, carbon footprint, etc.) With the tool, the accountant generates a simple extra-financial report for his VSE client in a very short time, with a few key indicators. 👉 Because yes: the solution is exclusively marketed by accountants, to their VSE-SME clients. With Jérôme, we talk: FEC and DSN: gold mines of data in terms of CSR. “It’s all in the FEC!” Calculation methods (“it’s not magic!”) Opportunities for new missions for firms Price lists and margins… And as Jérôme concludes: “Perhaps (…) the shift in the electronic invoice will help us capture a little of this time for the firms to take up the subject” 🤞. Good listening !

Louis Chatriot – Alma: Simplifying purchasing by reinventing payment

A hard time
Louis Chatriot - Alma: Simplify purchasing by reinventing payment
Description of the episode
Help merchants get paid in installments by their customers? This is the challenge that Louis Chatriot, founder of Alma, a payment service in installments, took on. 💸 However, if Alma is a success today, the path to get there was not always obvious. A graduate of Polytechnique, Louis began his career as a consultant, but quickly realized that the setting did not suit him. Without waiting, he launched with friends into an ambitious project: summarizing the internet. From this idea was born “tldr”, a site where a community of nearly 50 people summarizes articles. Despite the enthusiasm, the co-founders quickly decided to put an end to this adventure and sold their company in order to devote themselves to other projects. Always looking for a challenge, Louis refuses an offer to work as a boss in France at Stripe. Convinced that he has more to learn from a less developed company, he joins Local Motion, an American start-up producing boxes to control the opening of cars remotely. What follows is an adventure full of twists and turns punctuated by the installation of electronic sensors to monitor fleets of business vehicles. After a final struggle leading to the closing of the company, Louis seeks more stability to continue his learning. He found stability at Stripe where he became a Business operator. After having fully invested in launching a business in Italy, Louis, who is full of energy, embarks on a completely different adventure: the creation of a new company. He then founded Alma, a payment service in installments which simplifies purchasing and allows its users to move upmarket while purchasing without waiting.

:47 An unexpected “hold-up” just two years after launching his company - Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier - Forex trader
Description of the episode
Who would dare enter the offices of a New York company without having an appointment and asking to speak to the boss? Who would ask the financial authorities to create a new authorization to be able to develop their company? Who would try to convince the employee of a European partner to develop the subsidiary of an American company in Denmark? All these moments have marked the whirlwind history of Cambiste, a company facilitating investment in the currency market, bought just two years after its creation by the Danish bank Saxo Bank. A challenge that she met with flying colors with her partner, Alexis, ex-CEO of Mailjet. One thing is certain, its founder, Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier, lacks neither nerve nor ideas!

Like it or not, there is damage. In this episode, Nicolas looks back on the different phases of Soan's growth as well as his personal challenges as a manager.
