Speaker Corentin DE CHATELPERRON
After completing his engineering degree at the Nantes-based Institut Catholique d'Arts et Métiers (ICAM), Corentin de Chatelperron worked for 3 years on a number of eco-tourism programs before traveling to Bangladesh in 2009. While employed at the TaraTari shipyard, Corentin discovered the basis for his own personal project, namely the use of a local natural resource, in this case jute (or burlap) fiber, to build a more ecological and better adapted boat. From the TaraTari sailboat that first rolled off the assembly line to their second vessel prototype, called the "Gold of Bengal", the innovation pursued by Corentin and his team promoted considerable research in many sectors. Be on hand to meet this young visionary, whose career path offers a source of inspiration.
