Initially educated as a bio-engineer, Tanguy later completed an MBA in order to more efficiently link the conservation and farming world to business and funding. Work took Tanugy to Africa and Northern Europe for water management, ecotourism and renewable energy projects. In 2014, he co-founded a river restoration NGO in Belgium aiming to scale up river restoration and find ways to make it more sustainable by including land owners, farmers and institutions in the efforts. In the last years, Tanguy has also worked in Latin America for a Belgian company, aiming to turn around conventional farms and build them to regenerative agriculture practices.

Interest Areas

Collaboration Interests

Interested in collaboration mostly on conservation finance, and the development of healthy business models for conservation. I believe an element not used enough in my work is the marketing and communication, which could allow corporate world to get more involved in conservation within a commercial relationship. I also have interest in the innovation space, and in how to use IT and DATA to create business and conservation.

I Am Seeking

Business models for private conservancies and river conservation. Insights about IT and Big Data to be used for business and conservation. Partnerships with impact investors.

I Can Offer

My business profile with interest for finance, with on the ground freshwater, biomass and rural development expertise
