"Building for the next hundred years": Q&A with Jean-Charles Samuelian-Werve, co-founder and CEO of French unicorn Alan

Alan is trying to become the one-stop partner for all things related to your health (body + mind). An ambitious vision for the French tech scale-up, valued at €2.7 billion last we checked. We asked Alan CEO 'JC' a few questions about its plans for the future.

I had the pleasure of moderating an hour+ long conversation with Alan co-founder and CEO Jean-Charles Samuelian-Werve (and Fortino Capital managing partner Duco Sickinghe) the other day at the lovely TheMerode club in Brussels.

Best known for its customisable and user-friendly health insurance services, Paris-based Alan is now broadening the offer and wants to become the de facto one-stop health partner for millions of people. That vision certainly resonates with investors; the company just raised €183 million in a Series E round that valued Alan at €2.7 billion.

I seized the opportunity to stick a camera in the man's face to ask him a few follow-up questions for Tech.eu, about its plans for Alan, how to maintain a healthy and unique culture in a fast-growth environment, (predicting) the current tech downturn and the pressure that comes with it, and more.
