Chairman - Maurice Gopikian '96
 

MAURICE GOPIKIAN 1996-2023

 

It is with heavy hearts that we reflect on the life of an extraordinary individual whose journey touched many lives. From his early days, he exhibited a remarkable curiosity and drive, evident in his pursuit of knowledge at prestigious institutions such as Harvard Business School, EM Lyon Business School, and Ecole Centrale de Lyon. His academic achievements laid the foundation for a career characterized by innovation and leadership.

As a visionary entrepreneur, he founded numerous ventures and partnerships including Advanced Retail. His expertise in technology, telecommunications, and e-commerce was sought after by leading firms, including Accenture Strategic Consulting.

However, it was in his role as a catalyst for innovation and growth in the start-up ecosystem where he truly shone. Serving as the Founder and  President of Harvard Business Angels Association France for 15 years and at the same time Board Member of Harvard Business School Alumni Angels Association, he nurtured countless start-ups demonstrating an unwavering commitment to fostering entrepreneurial talent.

He was engaged in many social activities including G2IA in Erevan and Paris.

He leaves a wife and two children.
