    E-commerce

    Santédiscount is an online health and beauty retailer established in 2008 by two pharmacists from Toulouse. Guided by the principle that pharmaceutical products should be available online, Santédiscount’s founders, together with Loïc Lagarde, previously a Strategy Associate at Google and now CEO at Santédiscount, have made every effort to place human beings at the centre of the web. Ever since it was founded, Santédiscount has pursued an ethical and sustainable e-commerce model that combines advice from pharmacists, high quality products and an attractive pricing policy.

What I really appreciate is the quality of people that work in Ardian, they are financial oriented but they have really the knowledge to understand what the entrepreneur thinks and to help the company growth. It is a good mix that is very difficult to find on the market because normaly between finance and entrepeneurship there is a sort of barrier.

Marco Corradino CEO and founder of Lastminute.com

We have invested significantly in the business over the past three years. To accelerate our growth, it was important that we choose a Partner with a strong understanding of the issues relating to international growth as well as the challenges associated with expanding our product range. Given the team’s track record and entrepreneurial approach, Ardian Growth was the obvious choice of partner for us.
