The author : Stéphanie Bacquere

After studying applied mathematics to social sciences and IT, Stephanie started her career in 1999 in a French bank (BNP Paribas) and in several companies before saying "stop!".

During 2 years, she backpacked around the world before coming home and cofounding her first company, Elegangz Interactive, a digital strategy agency.

She is also deeply involved in associations and she is a real entrepreneur. She cofounded Reality (first international art festival in virtual worlds), Museomix (international community hacking museums), Art Game Week-end (a system to co-design mobile phone games), Radart (a system of co-creation for artist and makers), Make It Up (a festival of planned obsolescence), Council Paris (a think tank on the Internet of Things), FabLab Squared (first FabLab in France) and le Petit FabLab de Paris.

She used to be a member of the board of Silicon Sentier and of the Open Innovation Commission of the European Union and a chronicler for Radio France.

She is an expert of impacts of the digital, of Corporate Hacking, and of new forms of  collaboration. She also holds conferences on these subjects. In 2014, Stéphanie was awarded the Prix Usine Nouvelle "Femme du numérique" (digital woman).

In 2009, she cofounded nod-A with Marie-Noéline Viguié. Together they invented the Makestorming approach, in order to allow organizations to adopt more agile and collaborative cultures of startups.

In 2016, their book Makestorming, le guide du Corporate Hacking shares the results of ten years in the field with the public.
