Paris, France – June, 27, 2011
Qosmos today announced that its CEO, Thibaut Bechetoille, has been named as a delegate to represent France at the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit (G20 YES) to be held October 31-November 2, 2011.
The annual G20 YES will be held this year in Nice, France, in advance of the G20 meeting in Cannes. The G20 YES is a forum where young entrepreneurs from the G20 member nations meet with their peers, learn best practices in growing dynamic companies, and celebrate entrepreneurship as the leading source of job and wealth creation, innovation and well-being in nations.
Chosen from 700 candidates representing the breadth of French industry and commerce, Mr. Bechetoille joins a circle of 60 entrepreneurs who will represent France at the summit in October. Mr. Bechetoille has always placed entrepreneurship at the heart of his work and his management philosophy, and his position at the head of a young, fast-growing French company allows him to put that into action. Since joining Qosmos as CEO in 2005, Thibaut Bechetoille has led the company to six consecutive years of double-digit revenue growth by applying a radical shift in market positioning. This enabled Qosmos’ product offering to evolve from technological visionary to widespread adoption, and the company from venture capital start-up to a profitable global enterprise. 65% of Qosmos’ 2010 revenues came from international sales.
In addition to his responsibilities at Qosmos, Mr. Bechetoille is dedicated to promoting and developing entrepreneurship whenever possible. He is a member of several entrepreneur organizations, including CroissancePlus (a professional association made up of heads of high-growth enterprises whose purpose is to nurture new entrepreneurs), Reseau Entreprendre Paris (an association dedicated to providing guidance and mentoring to entrepreneurs in their new business ventures) and France Investissement (an organization that helps young companies find financial backing).
The G20 YES is organized in France by the Journées de l’Entrepreneur (Entrepreneur Days), an independent association of leading investors, associations, educational institutions and other influencers in the business world who work together to promote entrepreneurship and mobilize the economic and political community around the issues that impact its growth.
“Entrepreneurs worldwide are fundamental to growth and innovation locally and in an increasingly global marketplace. It is an honor to represent my company and my country at this important meeting and to participate in promoting a global understanding of the importance of entrepreneurship,” commented Mr. Bechetoille. “The G20 YES is a unique occasion for entrepreneurs from around the world to exchange ideas, promote best practices, and define propositions that would facilitate economic growth.”
