Spendesk

A graduate of École Polytechnique and Columbia University, Rodolphe created his first company straight out of university. In 2013, he sold his company to Solocal (formerly Pages Jaunes) and took up the role of COO at Drivy before getting back to his entrepreneurial roots with Spendesk.

A true SaaS devotee, he saw first hand that business spending and expense reports were a nightmare for companies of all sizes to manage, as much for employees as for management and accounting. That’s how he got the idea for Spendesk, THE answer to team spending.

His greatest strength : eating three burgers at once like it ain’t no thang :) His biggest fear : green veggies !

Jordane, aka J among his inner circle, graduated from École Polytechnique and Stanford. After his first role in entrepreneurship, he joined Coorpacademy as Technical project Manager before creating Spendesk with Rodolphe Ardant and Guilhem Bellion. Agile, scalable and lean, Jordane is daring, just like his product roadmap.

Distinguishing feature : a recently-donned wedding ring. OCD of most note : spontaneous Michael Jackson impersonations… he blames it on the boogie :)

After her first role in investment funds, Maylis, an ESSEC graduate, joined eFounders in 2016 to help create startups and became the very first Spedesk employee.

Aside from being a serious Gif fan (if it involves cats, count her in), since joining eFounders Maylis has been busy signing clients, putting together the Customer Success team, and taking such good care of Spendesk users that they’ve become the startup’s best ambassadors.

Her greatest strength : attentiveness Her biggest weakness : the sweet lure of the mighty honey drop

Presentation

Spendesk is a fast-growing SaaS & FinTech company based in Paris’ Silicon centre. Their mission: kill the hassle of payment at work. They believe in empowering employees and that spending for your company should be as easy as checking your email inbox. To achieve this goal, they use the latest innovations in the banking industry to reinvent the purchasing experience for companies.

Top startups like Drivy, Konbini, Dataiku or Deezer rely on Spendesk everyday to run their businesses and they absolutely love the product.
