What we do
We are uncertainty reducers in a rapidly changing technological world with its disruptions and opportunities. To this end, we provide companies and organizations with our skills in economic intelligence, geopolitics, and international economics to advise them in the field of semiconductors and high tech.
We started as economic journalists before training in geopolitics and international trade with a strong interest in Asia and China. We spent several trips to China to be “in total immersion” in the early 2010s.
Back in France to teach courses and trainings on the complex relationship between China and the United States. After this international experience, we chose to train in economic intelligence (EI) in order to be able to meet the information and analysis needs of companies, French and international organizations.
