Episode 5 : Damien, Hassan and Anela 🇫🇷 🇲🇦 🇩🇪 🇱🇺

Meet DamienAnela, and Hassan, co-founders of Stellar. A long-term friendship between Damien and Hassan and a lightning of chemistry with Anela has led the three to connect the dots between their countries (France, Germany, and Morocco) , diverse backgrounds, yet, common passion for innovation.  They founded Stellar in Luxembourg and developed the technology that ensures that any vehicle remains connected at high speed and without interruptions, even across borders and rural areas. We invited the professional trio for a conversation in our studios to ask their about their respective and joint journey. They told us about their view of risk-taking, impact driven innovation, and… pillow-fights – a major part of their startup culture.
