Fonto de vivo on its way to the BFM Académie final

For several weeks, David Monnier, Chairman and co-founder of Fonto de vivo, took part in the BFM Academy, and we've put together a retrospective to give you an insight into our adventure!

It all started on Monday 31 May 2021 during the regional casting in Niort at the Village By CA Charente-Maritime Deux-Sèvres.

After the regional selection stages, the candidates are coached by mentors. They include Virginie Calmels, President and founder of the Futurae school, Fabrice Marsella CEO of Village by CA Paris, and Philippe Pouletty, entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of Truffle Capital. The role of the BFM Academy mentors is to coach the participants in their confrontations with experts from different specialities. Virginie Calmels drew the lottery for Fonto de vivo and will coach David Monnier for the rest of the competition.
