Théo and Paul were students at HEC until a year ago. The agency they created during their studies, Coudac, is now valued at more than 10M€. Theo is notably known for his personal branding, which allowed him to find his first clients and to be followed by more than 40k subscribers on LinkedIn, YouTube and others.

On the program, how and why they created their company during their studies, how to use personal branding to help their company, how to go from freelance to creating an agency, what are the main lessons they learned in management and customer relations, how to differentiate themselves with a very young agency in a saturated market...?
