My name is Willy Braun (@willybraun), I'm the co-founder of daphni, a new pan-European venture capital fund investing in digital startups that have a strong impact on people's lives.
Prior to daphni, I was GM of France Digitale, a french lobby gathering startups & investors to make France a better place to found and develop digital champions.
I love books (check my library!), design, social sciences (especially psychology & economics), photography (check my photos!), clothes and marketing. But most of all, I'm fascinated by storytelling of all form.
I've written three books:
Human Resources for Startups, a book designed for founders, managers, and investors of fast-growing companies. Based on extended interviews of 30+ experts, co-founders, CHROs, headhunters, CEOs, COOs, coaches, and VCs, it offers concrete tools and frameworks to put in place in a startup or scale-up.

Internet Marketing (FR), written with Neila Romdane, rewarded 3 times by FNAC (biggest french book retailer) & best-selling book in its category in France in 2013.
Le guide des bonnes relations banques startups (FR), written with Mathieu Daix, with the help of the great teams of Crédit Mutuel Arkea.
