I had the chance to support a great young entrepreneur coming from France this week in Silicon Valley who has this charisma when it comes to be on stage: when he talks, you listen. He knows what he has to say, and he knows how to say it. His name is Ismael Nzouetom, he’s the CEO and co-founder of I-Dispo.

This pic is from a Tech event in Paris…

I just found this very interesting video today, just listen…

To be on stage for a startup pitch or a music concert, that’s is the same thing (almost): “Base your solo on the grove”… you must keep people’s attention. A startup is a hard job, involving a Team, many hours, days, months, personal commitment… Think when you give the pitch about to reflect all this and do the show! I saw Ismael doing the show at Founder Showcase, a Tech event is San Francisco, keep on going man!

When you start to pitch, don’t forget to grove. Audience feels it too! Like when you grove with your Team when you work. People wants to dance, like investors when they listen to you. Make them come dancing with your and their $. Or just blame yourself.

I learned a lot about those stuffs with another star from Cameroon, my bro Francis Jocky, when we did record his 3rd album “Sanctified” in Paris, and each time I saw him performing in concert. Music and startup, same fight! Get up, stand up guys!

I know Francis Jocky for some time now. Such an important person to me…

Now this is the story…

The Jocky Foundation

“My Dad used to tell me that the biggest poverty of all is the ignorance. The Jocky Foundation believes that it is possible to make some changes in targeted areas in order to bring education to the children in Cameroon, Africa.

The Jocky Foundation (JF) is a 501c3 international charitable organization devoted to empowering Cameroonian youth, by providing education and the basic necessities of food, clothing and holistic health in Bonendalè village in Cameroon. Our vision is to give as many Cameroonian children as possible the chance to escape the poverty cycle and grow in the nurturing environment of an JF Academy, so that they can lead Cameroon towards an economically strong and politically stable future.”
