When Laetitia started the company in 2007, she had a strong vision that smartphones would be a promising bridge to connect the passive, physical world of street furniture, bus stops, shop windows, etc. to relevant digital content, delivering that content to a specific individual, at a specific location, at a specific point in time.
Prior to Connecthings, Laetitia worked for mobile operators, solution providers and major device manufacturers. In 1999 she managed the implementation of the first Mobile internet gateway for Orange. In 2001, she founded a consultancy company to provide operational support in mobile value added services implementation. In 2011, Women Business Mentoring Initiative selected Laetitia to enter the WBMI mentoring program. Laetitia is an engineer and is member of INRIA board. Public science and technology institution established in 1967, Inria is the only public research body fully dedicated to computational sciences.
