DSTI SINCE 2015
Data ScienceTech Institute (DSTI) was created in 2015 on an idea from Sébastien Corniglion and Léo Souquet. As former co-founders of an Information Systems start up targeted for SMEs, they quickly faced difficulties in hiring the right staff. As no one really had the full-width range of skills required for the Big Data world of the XXIst century. With years of experience in the Higher Education world, particularly in France and in the UK, they also had a vision of what worked beautifully and what needed to be changed.
DSTI was constructed with the world-famous quality and intensity of French science and engineering. And the natural British business savviness and pragmatism on the other. As the project was taking shape, they met José Massol, a very active Business Angel and retired Senior Vice-President of Thales. Very attracted by the project, he offered to come in not as a Business Angel but as a partner, and is now our esteemed Chairman.
