A serial entrepreneur with multiple startup exits under his belt, Dom created the first online art auction back in March 1996, which was acquired by one of the largest auction sites in the
world five months later. He then created Powerclick, a digital marketing agency with 500+ advertisers as clients. The agency merged with a publicly listed company in the spring of 2001 in an eight-figure
M&A transaction. Today, he advises and invests in a wide range of technology startups.
A native of Alsace, Dom speaks six languages (French, German, English, Spanish, Alsatian
and Vietnamese) and understands the importance of breaking down language barriers. The same philosophy applies to businesses. In 2018, he returned to France and settled in Sarlat-la-Canéda (Dordogne) with a single focus: to build the world’s largest rural incubator-accelerator, UNIQORN (https://uniqornincubator.com/). The digital startup ecosystem and angel investing represent Dom’s true passion. As an
investor, he has provided seed funding to over 20 technology startups. As an entrepreneur, he
has managed client campaigns with budgets exceeding $3 billion, delivered 7 million+ sales
leads and generated over $500 million in sales as a power affiliate. Dom constantly scours
the world for the next breakout startups in his fields of predilection: fintech, digital media,
augmented and virtual reality, artificial intelligence, cleantech, edtech, health tech and food
tech. More recently, Dom founded the Startup Supercup (https://startupsupercup.com/), a leading tech conference that unites 1000 carefully vetted angel investors, VCs, private equity funds, technology startups and leading media outlets from around the world. The three-day conference takes place in medieval Sarlat France, the capital of the idyllic Périgord noir and central hub of the French tech ecosystem in the Dordogne Valley. As a die-hard rugby fan, Dom is also the president of Sarlat Rugby (https://sarlatrugby.com/), a semi-professional rugby team founded in 1903.
