Hello, I’m Pierre

I’m a French entrepreneur who loves the Internet. I started my first venture fresh out of high school – at a time where Internet access came in the mail – and I haven’t stopped since!

While graduating from my Masters of IT I decided to move to Australia and I started to work for a couple of Sydney based startups. One thing led to another and in 2008 I was fortunate enough to join Mick, Phil and Jon in the very early days of Pollenizer. I spent 5 years working with a team of fantastic people and together we’ve built Australia’s first web incubator and had the privilege to help over a hundred startups.

I am now an investor in Pollenizer Holdings and Pollenizer Global with a portfolio of about 20 startups, 3 of which are now profitable companies.

In 2013 my partner Rachel and I moved back to France to enjoy the tranquility of the south of France. In my spare time I do what I can to help local startups. I can be reached on my gmail (pierre.sauvignon) or on Twitter. I also blog here and on Medium from time to time.
