Sophie started her career in the nonprofit world, working as an Advocacy Officer for World Vision in Paris. In 2010, she assisted Quadia in the development of an innovative investment solution looking to tackle the HIV/AIDS burden in Africa.

Frequently, Sophie advises young ventures and smaller nonprofits on their impact evaluation strategy (Includeed, Be You Network, Bayes Impact, BeTheWave…). She also volunteers in several impactful organizations (Wedu, SAHR).
