Entrepreneurial Journeys is a podcast for anyone curious about where growth is happening around the world. Here we speak with the people behind innovative companies building the future.

Our job is to ensure that technology supports humans for a better customer experience and fosters interactions between men and women, which a computer will never be able to replicate.

Loïc Lagarde, CEO of Santediscount

Meet Loïc Lagarde, Chief Executive Officer of the French online parapharmacy company Santédiscount. He’s one of many entrepreneurs working with Ardian to leverage data and innovation, and build the companies of the future.

In Entrepreneurial Journeys, we speak to Lagarde and other entrepreneurs from across Europe, working in technology, healthcare, mobility, education, and more.

We'll hear about their greatest successes and challenges, how they weathered the pandemic, and where their industries are going next.

"Our job is to make sure that we do everything we can so that technology does what technology does best and humans do what humans do best. That means that we need to make sure that humans spend their time talking and interacting with other humans, because that's what we're very good at and that's what a computer will never be able to do."
