    "We could easily live without an Uber. It's not going to change our lives if we just have to flag a taxi. But tomorrow if we run out of food, that's a big problem. If we destroy the environment, that's a big problem."

    “Founders need to have force, to be able to move mountains and stay resilient when things are not easy. Creativity and charisma are important, of course, but resilience is a very key feature.”

    "If you want to find a deeptech investor, able to make some impact and help you make progress in industrial biotech Sofinnova is it."

    “You need to hire people who are better than you are.”
