Julien has over 20 years of experience in manufacturing and services, much of it at the CEO level. He has worked in more than 80 countries across five continents and participated in over $1.7bn of purchase, sale, and financing transactions. He is no stranger to starting things: in his early career he traveled the world building mobile phone networks literally from the ground up, and as his career progressed he ended up building whole mobile phone companies from scratch.
In recent years he shed the corporate world to allow his entrepreneurial spirit to flourish. As part of the founding team of Double Recall, Julien attended the YCombinator S11 class. He then became an active founder of ABC Accelerator in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and of ABC First Growth, the VC arm of ABC. He became a serial investor in early-stage businesses and with his partner invested in more than 40 early-stage ventures, and he still serves on the boards of a number of them.
It was Julien’s inspiration that led to the formation, and naming, of Fil Rouge Capital in 2016, and he has been instrumental in its rise to prominence in the SEE region as a favored investor. He holds a master’s Degree in Telecom engineering, is an avid skier and wakeboarder, cultivates olives for oil, and has an extensive cellar full of Bordeaux wine which he generously shares.
