Denis Jacquet (HEC 89, Master in Business Law and Tax).
Started as a tax lawyer with Baker & Mackenzie in NYC. Launched his first company in 93 at the age of 27. Made a success of it. Acquired a declining leading distance education company in France and revamped it, turned it international, increased significantly the revenues and sold it to a group of training investors.
He then became a pioneer of the e-learning market. International development has been the key factor for EduFactory success. EduFactory became one of the only French training companies with a presence in more than 8 countries.
Denis and a bunch of entrepreneurs thought that they could help other SMB to do likewise and started Parrainer la Croissance-PLC (Mentor the Growth) a not for profit organization. It aims at setting up an organization through concrete and visible actions where using wasted human resources could set an example to catch growth with entrepreneurs willing to bring sense and benefits, to their environment.

We want to support the new generation of entrepreneurs by helping them to reach out for growth at any cost through international development. We set up “Accélérateurs de Croissance” (growth accelerators), to provide senior executive skills supplied by fortune 500 companies to fuel their growth. Parrainer la Croissance became the leading association with more than 3600 entrepreneurs and going up.
PLC is now one of the rare networks called by politics and large firms to think and act to promote growth for entrepreneurs.
