Raphael Hassid I am a French student from EDHEC Business School (Lille, northern France), where I am studying business administration with a concentration in finance. Before that, I studied engineering in Paris. I am currently working as an intern at a real estate promoter in Paris. I work in the financial department, where I study the feasibility of real estate projects (cost for buying, for building, etc.). In the future, I hope to pursue a career in Venture Capital. I am passionate about new technologies, and the VC space seems to be the best opportunity to mix my passion for finance with my passion for technology. Apart from that, I write articles as a hobby. I write about new technologies and finance-related subjects. Soon I hope to found a blog where articles are stored in a blockchain ledger. Therefore, most recently I have been focusing on learning to code using Solidity. As this project develops, I will be sure to update you.
