So, starting a business is huge, but leading a business in the digital world is a FREAKING thing to do!
There are still 22% at least of startups failing to pass their 1st year on average, and 50% their first 5 years of operations.
Everything is changing so fast, the rules of the business game, the markets trends, the customers habits, the type of innovations needed, etc. and no one would argue about the fact that launching and running a business today is completely different than in 1994 when Jeff Bezos created Amazon, or even in 2012 when Melanie Perkins created Canva.
And in order to be able to follow up with this speed and complexity and leverage the power of the digital era, entrepreneurs must find a way to move from "just having the business idea part" into "having the business idea and being able to lead and manage all the aspects of an entrepreneurial project to achieve the desired goal".
To put it simply, if you want to have successful digital businesses today, you need to master the art of "entrepreneurial leadership" and embody the role of an "entrepreneurial leader" in an authentic and genuine way: YOUR OWN WAY.

With her 10+ years of professional record in different sectors (Industry, finances, education, insurances, Tech) and her academic degrees (system engineering PhD, electromechanical engineer), Nesrine is a modern polymath. Since her early age, she has developed an excessive amount of curiosity which has led her to always wanting to learn, understand and master different subjects in various domains.
After graduating as an electromechanical engineer, she started her career in the automotive industry as a software developer in PSA Peugeot Citroen company where she worked on developing advanced software solutions for hybrid & electric cars. She was working and conducting her PhD in system engineering at the same time with the Arts&Métiers ParisTech school in France, that she completed in 3 years.

Her scientific curiosity, mastery of system thinking principles and passion towards advanced technologies has led to her to develop the required skills to navigate between the cyber and the physical worlds easily and flawlessly with a record of 11+ international patents. She became a cloud architect and worked on developing solutions for autonomous cars on different cloud platforms such as AWS and GCP and their IoT solutions, that she was able to present at multiple occasions at various international conferences (CTI symposium, SAE symposium, Yokohama international conference).
After running a couple of projects, she became interested in management practices and started applying and running her projects based on the agile practices, values and principles. It was so much fun, kind of like the fewest rare early applications of agile practices in a non-IT environment She’s a certified professional scrum master and safe program consultant.
And as her projects grow, as she learned how to scale those management practices and develop her leadership style. Until she decided to quit the industrial sector and start working as a senior consultant in a consulting firm…and that was hell of a fun time! During the years she spent over there, she navigated from one mission to another, one company to another and certainly one problematic to another. Her clients were all around the world (USA, Germany, France, North Africa, Asia) and she worked as a digital transformation consultant and enterprise architect for financial institutions, aerospace and automotive companies, governmental institutions, as well as insurances corporations.
For the past 3 years, she has also been volunteering to assist French based SMEs and startups through Paris incubators as a business strategist to help entrepreneurs build and scale their businesses (business development, fund raising, investors pitching).
