Julien Hobeika

Partner, Paris

Based in Paris, Julien brings a wealth of firsthand experience as CEO in B2B SaaS, AI and Data to the EQT Ventures team. Before moving into VC, Julien co-founded and led Julie Desk, a Natural Language Processing-based Virtual Assistant. He then managed a distressed M&A by taking over Nimley, an outbound prospecting tool, and afterwards joined Dataiku to help them launch multiple new products, including their SaaS Offering.

In his role as Partner, Julien scouts out investment across the French ecosystem, helping EQT Ventures back more tech-savvy founders in the B2B space.

Outside work, you’ll find Julien spending time with his wife and two children, fixing everything from toasters to bikes to computers, plus tuning into his favorite films and TV shows.
