Pascal Froux, the Managing Partner of Flamel smart growth, is a graduate of a major French engineering school. On the strength of his engineering skills, specialized in mathematics, information technology and finance, he built up corporate management expertise as illustrated by the outstanding success of Fermat, a globally recognized provider for risk measurement and monitoring software, which he co-founded and developed, before selling the company to Moody’s Corporation in 2008.
Nicolas Flamel was a French scrivener and manuscript-seller who lived in Paris in the 14th century. Legend has it that he was the alchemist who discovered the famous Philosopher’s Stone that turns mercury into gold. This discovery allegedly enabled Nicolas Flamel to amass a considerable fortune. It would however seem that his fortune was actually the result of his entrepreneurial ability, arising from the flourishing activity of his workshop producing luxurious manuscripts, at an age in which they sold for a very high price.
