Amazing things Benoit's made
Together with 3 girl-friends I build a board game set it Sicily in order to celebrate Sicilian food. The SIKULeat.
The idea sparkled in August last year.
Inspired by my friends’ Sicilian roots and the great project, we wanted to launch this board game by last Christmas.

We made it on time, developing, producing and distributing the game with a turnaround of 4 months.

I had the pleasure to work directly with Benoit for a couple of years, when he was part of my team at Philips, being responsible for one of our global ranges of baby bottles.
I have always valued his thinking (also out of the box), his speed of action and the energy and drive he put in projects, despite the headwinds to face.
He is a good team player and has built constructive business relationships both within the local Amsterdam team and with our country organizations.
He is also very open, trustworthy, and overall very pleasant to work with.

Mikhail Bruev Business Transformation Program Manager at Philips recommended ChromosHome where Benoit is Co-Founder

Knowing Benoit for quite a few years I can highlight his entrepreneurship spirit, passion for his work and strong interpersonal skills, allowing him to get a circle of people around him and inspire them to achieve a certain goal. I also think that his pragmatic approach to business and life will benefit him and the team in succeeding with their startup.

Ideawise ChromosHome is a promising concept as provides transparency to a market which can be rather risky and vague, especially in places where supply is substantially lower than demand, allowing disbalance and opportunistic behaviors by the landlord.

I believe in the success of this project once the certain number of reviews is generated and once the company identifies the incentive for landlords in the cities with limited supply to list their property in the system.
