Hi, I'm Maxime

I’m a media analyst and consultant working at the junction of the creative industries and technology.

 

I live and work in Paris, France.

Consulting

I work with media and technology companies to help them generate insights, assess opportunities, and achieve growth.

My focus is on market research, technology scouting, positioning, and go-to-market strategy.

Select clients include:

  • Corporations: Meta, TF1
  • Startups: Ircam Amplify, Kinetix, Finimize
  • Institutions: Marché du Film (Festival de Cannes)
  • VC firms: Level-Up
  • Consultancies: Naavik, Eric Peckham’s Wonderhop LLC

For ways to work together, I offer hourly consulting, fee-based projects, and monthly project-based retainers.

Research

For three years now (and counting), I’ve published in-depth reviews of the most interesting companies, trends, and initiatives pushing Media & Entertainment Tech forward.

These reports have helped hundreds of VCs, founders, executives, and analysts understand this space better and assess opportunities in their respective fields.

They’ve been read by people at Unity, Riot Games, Meta, Sapphire Ventures, betaworks, and many others; and featured by industry experts like Devon H. Dolan, Eric Peckham, and John Kosner, and companies like The Brandtech Group.

From 2019 to 2021, I actively monitored VC and M&A deals in the Media & Entertainment Tech landscape. The result of this work is a comprehensive database of over 1,000 deals, rich with detailed tags for granular filtering. It’s a great resource for any investor looking to parse historical trends and draw some valuable comps.

Writing

I write Recreations, a newsletter about the intersection of media, technology, and culture. It’s where I share my thoughts on exciting products and companies, emerging consumer trends, significant moves in the market, and more. It’s also the best place to receive reports like the ones above.

I also work with clients to produce in-depth content on their industries and businesses. My writing has been featured by Naavik and the World Economic Forum.
