Jean Rognetta

Journalist, President of PME Finance, Editor-in-Chief of SAY

A financial journalist with a strong technology background, with an experience in launching innovative editorial projects. In particular, he recently participated in the launch of the French edition of Forbes magazine, and now of Revue SAY, in association with Project Syndicate and Editions Hermann.

Founder and president of PME Finance, an independent, non-profit think tank bringing together leading entrepreneurs, VCs and politicians in France. Also a writer of books, such as La République des Réseaux (Fayard, 2012), and in-depth financial studies for my former employer, DI Group (Les Echos, Capital Finance, Eurostaf).

Active on the French VC/tech conference circuit, academic and professional, I used to specialize in venture capital lato sensu, ranging from innovation finance to IPO via expansion capital. I keep a deep interest in tech, and just about anything new.
