At 21 years old and in parallel to his third year of Bachelor, Geoffrey Chataignier has already created Invite-People, tactile tools and software creation.
Geoffrey, what is your educational background?
I did a scientific baccalaureate, specializing in physics. I then went on to study for a degree in business administration, law and economics at university. I didn’t necessarily like the setting because it was very academic and not very interesting. There are a lot of people, it was a bit of an assembly line, so I went to business school.
And why did you choose INSEEC Chambéry?
Several of my acquaintances had told me about it, so I looked it up on the Internet. I don’t regret my choice at all. Our teachers are professionals. They are constantly connected to reality and allow us to go through concrete business cases, which interested me a lot. It’s completely different from college because there, when you ask a question, you get clear answers.
You are also a young entrepreneur…
This was also one of the reasons why I joined Inseec, because I can be two weeks in my company and two weeks at school. I created Invite-People which makes touch applications and am co-founder of Arts Systèmes which also makes innovative applications. I like this freedom of enterprise. I could have been a laboratory researcher but I wasn’t interested. In fact, I’m going to Las Vegas at the French Tech, to present my activities. It’s always an opportunity to exchange! I had the opportunity to meet the Director of Development of General Motors there.
Would you recommend the school to other students?
Oh yes, fully! There are students who are not interested in entrepreneurship, but who fit in perfectly at Inseec. Studies allow you to gain legitimacy. This is one of the main reasons why I want to continue next year in MSc Management here at Inseec Campus Chambéry.Updated 24 February 2022
