“Often when we have an ambitious vision, and it’s slightly off our comfort zone, which is 95% of the time what entrepreneurship is, we have to have a road towards the person we need to become.”

Camille Socquet-Clerc, CEO and co-founder of Bloom Impact

“People start to take you seriously when you have a true genuine community around you because that validates the appetite for the solution you’re bringing.”

Camille Socquet-Clerc, CEO and co-founder of Bloom Impact

“It’s all about momentum, it’s about taking those little small steps. I think the worst thing you can do at that stage is be overwhelmed. I think one of the number one qualities of an entrepreneur at the beginning is the capacity not to get overwhelmed by the ambition and the light piece.”

Camille Socquet-Clerc, CEO and co-founder of Bloom Impact

“If you have concerns about climate impact or climate change, and how you can scale your impact, looking at your finance is a great place to start.”
