After graduating from Dauphine, Christophe spent five years in the European headquarters of US multinationals: WR Grace, BetzDearbon then Hercules, where he worked on improving the information systems and the introduction of new management tools. In 1999 he joined his first start-up: Jooker, an online loyalty solution. He then supported the development of the internet strategy of the Kouro-Sivo Group, a leading French operational marketing player.
In 2004, after a gap year devoted to crossing the Atlantic by sailboat and discovering South America, he participated in the launch of a chain of restaurants before returning to innovation in ICT: Kamayo and Streamezzo and E-Sidor.
There he met Denis Bastiment and specialized in usage innovation and software development based on the use of proven and democratized technologies: mobile rich media, 3G, touch screens, etc. Then, with E-Sidor in 2007, he launched the first software solutions dedicated to the elderly and soon realized that mainstream computing was yet to hit the world of healthcare.
>From 2009, he then brought together as many ICT players as possible in order to establish a single service provider to better manage the health capital of older people and to make their lives easier at home. Having convinced a pool of partners - Icade, Archos, Atos, Sagemcom... - he launched in late 2010 the project RéVAD, the Living At Home Network with Pierre-Yves Simonot. He then received the support of Future Investments at the end of 2011 and created the company Santech a few months later in 2012.
A native of the Île-de-France region, Denis studied engineering and cut his teeth for 5 years in consulting firms. He joined Euro RSCG and implemented the first marketing database and campaign monitoring solution at the Hors Media subsidiary. Upon the arrival of the web in 1995, he became head of digital at the communications agencies Everest and Kouro Sivo. In 1999 he founded with three partners, including Christophe Lorieux, the Jooker company, an online multi-brand and multi-label loyalty programme, sold in 2002 to the E-laser group to become the online component of the S'mile program. An expert in digital and usage innovation, through the use of technology, he created in 2004 the Kamayo company that positioned itself from the arrival of 3G in France as the first Mobile Agency developing applications on mobile phones and smartphones. A pioneer of these new media and practices, the company grew very rapidly and positioned itself internationally. Kamayo was bought in 2005 by the mobile software company Streamezzo to create a global player in the mobile applications sector. He became a shareholder and co-director of Streamezzo for 3 years. The company was acquired in 2010 by one of the leading platforms for mobile multimedia services: Amdocs. He then devoted himself for 2 years to supporting and advising startups in emerging markets: cloud software, online games, e-commerce and social networks, then decided in 2012 to join his partner Christophe Lorieux to resume an operational role within the company Santech. He ensures the operational management of the company under the chairmanship of Christophe and heads up the Marketing and Commercial development strategy of the company.

After international experience at the NATO International Secretariat in Brussels, he joined the Sema Group in 1990 to develop defence and space activities. He set up an innovative methodology to define command systems leading to the choice of the Sema Group to lead the definition of a space surveillance system (1996) and then as leader of the consortium in charge of the SICA program for the computerization of the Army Command and the Directorate of Military Intelligence (1998). He then joined the corporate management of the group to ensure its international development and the coordination of its subsidiaries - 20,000 people.
