Valérie started her career in 1999 with the French Development Financial Institution PROPARCO. In 2006, she joined Symbiotics, a Swiss impact asset management company where she held several managerial positions. Valérie currently sits on the board and investment committee of several impact asset management companies, renewable energy ventures and impact investment funds.
