About Alexandre Peyraud

📖 Summary

A summary of my career in four distinct parts: 1) Founding, administration and management of Start-ups in: IT, Internet, video games and finance. 2) Consulting, training, coaching, analysis and investment management in the field of Start-ups. 3) Management of communities in online games, with strong experience in the game Shadowbane and other MMORPGs. 4) Projects related to fantasy universes (heroic-fantasy and sci-fi): design, consulting, writing encyclopedias, writer of short stories (like books found in World of Warcraft). Writing scenarios, creating or expanding imaginary universes, related or not with video games. All these experiences lead me today to three groups of skills: 1) A strong knowledge of Start-ups, management or analysis. Especially in their most difficult phase of development and growth. 2) Anything related to the marketing of innovation (markets not yet existing or established) as well as in the field of online communities, particularly in the field of video games and fun. 3) Writing in general, from the point of view of a journalist on topics such as Start-ups and the marketing of innovation, as well as the field of fantasy universes (with a strong preference for heroic-fantasy and sci-fi).Owner @ The main goal of alecent is to offer confirmed services to achieve the success of Startups and investment from investors. It could be addressed to Startups Founders or Private Investor, who want to invest in a Startup or have already invested and want to ensure the success of their investment. And at last, dedicated to Investment fund, institutional or industrial investors and when a company wishes to make direct investment. It could be done by coaching the startups management, challenge business / revenue model, make a survey on a specific topic or have a seat at the board to help investors to ensure the success of their investment. As founder of alecent, I bring forward my past experience of startups creator (with great success as some failures), as a coach with Genilem, CTI / Venturelab and as investor with an ethical fund and Debiopharm (and already in one of my successful startup).

It was possible to show their characteristics, equipment and compare it to other players. Different subscriptions were available, like a freemium access or annual fees. When you paid, you could automate and certify the information of the characters. In summary, Magelo was the precursor to the World of Warcraft Armory, years before that. I was co-founder, more than the development; I was in charge for the administrative part, technical intervention but I participated a lot about the strategy and the future of Magelo.
