The history of the creation of ALGOSUP

Starting from a blank page - the creation of ALGOSUP

Before anything, we have to let you know something: we don’t come from the world of education… and that’s perhaps good news.

Les trois fondateurs d'ALGOSUP : Franck Jeanin, Natacha Boez et Éric Larchevêque.

Éric and Franck did engineering studies that were a bit (too) conventional so they wanted to create a school that would have been their “dream school” as students. Natacha, who has initiated hundreds of people to become entrepreneurs, wanted to create a link between the world of studies and businesses.

We started from a blank page so we wouldn’t get bogged down by outdated methods, and we put our obsession with results to the service of a single objective: closing the cultural gap between studies and work.

While some schools made the choice of IT by opportunism (it's true that the needs in the domain are immense), that isn’t our case. Éric and Franck have had a passion for software creation ever since they learned how to use keyboards! Along the 30 years of their careers, everything has changed besides their enthusiasm for the subject and their irresistible need to learn new things.

The Three Founders


Franck started his career by developing the first video games of UbiSoft at the time when it was still a very small startup. He also had the chance to work for BusinessObjects when everything was still to be invented, and well before the company was bought over by SAP for 4.8 billion euros. 

Curious and imaginative, he has filed a number of patents and has notably contributed to eradicating the problem of broken links on the Internet. 

Drawn by the richness of multicultural exchanges, he has created companies in France, England, and the USA, and he has spent time in over 50 countries.


Éric has never been a salaried employee and is a true serial-entrepreneur. Indeed, he capitalises on each success to create the next and to see bigger and bigger.

His previous success before the creation of ALGOSUP: Ledger, the world leader in securing crypto-assets [translation: creating electronic wallets]. Created in 2014 and valued at more than 1.5 billion dollars, it is officially the 17th largest French unicorn. 

In his free time, Éric is also on the M6 show, Qui Veut Être Mon Associé (Who Wants to be My Associate). In addition to the show, he has invested in over thirty IT companies and sits on the administrative board of several of them.

Natacha BOEZ

Natacha always wanted to be an entrepreneur and it's that desire which motivated her choice of tertiary education. Arriving in the world of work presented a culture shock between the theory and the reality.

After a stint in Canada she realised that in order to start a business, a mindset shift was more important than simply accumulating knowledge. Following this realisation, she worked to initiate as many people as possible, from the youngest age likely, to start their own businesses.  

With the creation of ALGOSUP, she has finally passed to the other side of the table to put into practice the advice that she gave.
