About Phil Jeudy


Phil Jeudy

Passionate about high tech, I have been involved in IT since the beginning of my career, and I also have held various financial positions in international companies.

I’m an expat living in San Francisco bridging innovation and emerging technologies between Silicon Valley and Europe. I do survey the latest market trends and bring that knowledge to my clients, helping to bridge the gap in the United States and in Europe. And vice versa.

I’m the creator of a new concept of business trips in Silicon Valley: I named it “Geektrip”. More business focused, it’s an accelerator and kind of incubator. You have no idea what can happen within a week with a G.O. like me. If I’m contacting you here, there must be a good reason.

In short: I like to make the impossible achievable, because there is always a way.

I’m a Board Advisor for startups WatZatSong.com (music community portal) and Investor in Koko Entertainment. I’m a writer at Lexpress.fr with my blog Le Journal de la Silicon Valley. I have been co-organizing in Paris Barcamps, with focus on Mobile, Video and Open Source and co-organize the Ignite events with Damien Douani.

On Twitter, I’m PhilJ

Check what Geektrip is, with this interview in French:
