Olivier Coune

Chairman

Following a career as a CEO, including several years leading “La Maison Marcolini” with Pierre, I’ve invested alongside entrepreneurs. I’m delighted to support this vibrant and passionate team in their growth, both as an investor and a board member. Pacaya is an innovative project with genuine potential, appealing to a broad audience of users and advertisers.

Jean Collinet Anspach

Co-founder

Alongside a career as a high-level athlete, I discovered entrepreneurship at the age of 14 by selling magic tricks to strangers on the street. 10 years later, I created Pacaya for the same reasons... to try to bring forth the sublime but all too often hidden reality of the world around us.

Basile Thisse

Co-founder

I am a polytechnic engineer with a double master's degree in electromechanics and entrepreneurship from the Polytechnic Schools of Brussels and Montreal. In 2019, one month after my arrival in Montreal, I founded a circular economy startup that received numerous awards and over $500,000 from the Canadian government. By creating Pacaya, I live my passions every day and I hope to inspire as many people as possible to live unique experiences that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Jonathan Kubben

Co-founder

A few years ago, I set off to the other side of the globe with the desire to explore the world and have unforgettable experiences. I then created the brand Mom I’m Fine; I collaborated with many prestigious brands (Adidas, Canon, etc.) and in 2019, I had the honor of being named Influencer of the Year. I am now eager to continue sharing my passion through Pacaya.

Victor Ernaelsteen

Co-founder

For 15 years, I devoted my life to tennis. I had the privilege of being coached by Olivier Rochus and Jacques Borlée and traveling the world to participate in international tournaments. My best ranking: 17th-ranked Belgian player. At the age of 23, I decided to embark on a new path, that of entrepreneurship. My commitment to Pacaya represents a fresh start, driven by the desire to forge a community united by the pursuit of the extraordinary.
