Full biography of Arnaud Bonzom

Arnaud is active as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at INSEAD and has co-authored a report with INSEAD on how the largest organizations are engaging with startups which achieved press coverage across 28 countries and generated more than 120 speaking engagement invitations.

He has been invited by Accenture, Airbus, Allianz, Amazon Web Services, BMW, Deloitte, INSEAD, MERCER, NUS, Standard Chartered, as well as the Estonian, German and the Singaporean Governments, among others to share his input on Corporate Innovation and Startup Ecosystem.

His extensive work in the startup ecosystem received more than 160 citations in prominent media such as Forbes, Bloomberg TV, and Les Echos. His research is also quoted by leading organizations including Bain, SAP, BNP Paribas, and Orange.

His main research interest is in Startups and Innovation. More generally, he is fond of subjects which combine several if not all of the following themes:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Venture Capital
  • Corporate Development
  • Corporate Startup Engagement
  • Building a Startup Ecosystem

He is also the author of The Asia Funding / M&A Newsletter and the Singapore startup ecosystem and entrepreneur toolbox as well as a mentor at Entrepreneur First and Techstars in Singapore.

In a nutshell, by not having any agenda to push, Arnaud brings some balance in a heavily biased and marketed field.

He is one of the most read independent authors on startup ecosystems and venture capital in Southeast Asia: 560,000+ views and 260+ press coverages and mentions (e.g. Accenture, Bain, INSEAD, Orange, SAP)

He is also a seasoned speaker with 160+ speaking engagements (85+ keynotes) in 20+ countries (e.g. DLD, SuperReturn, WebSummit).

Arnaud is a former Venture Partner at 500 Startups where he was focusing on helping Southeast Asian entrepreneurs to succeed. Earlier in his career, he was involved in setting up and growing new businesses including for INSEAD as Assistant Director of Corporate Partnership Development. Prior to that, he worked at Business France as Trade Advisor in New Technologies, Innovation and Services.

Arnaud holds a Masters Degree in International Marketing and Business Development at SKEMA Business School as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Mathematics at the University of Versailles.
