Following its series A funding round in 2017, during which it raised €8 million from leading corporate and financial investors, Stratumn strengthen its teams with two senior appointments.
Jérôme Lefebvre and William Mougayar join Stratumn following the company’s recent launch of its new SaaS product IndigoTrace in early 2018 and significant expansion with the doubling of its office space.

Leveraging 20 years’ experience in executive positions for US and European firms in the enterprise software sector, Jérôme Lefebvre will lead Stratumn’s operations and help the company accelerate in delivering its go-to-market strategy. His mission is to help Stratumn become a leader in the inter- enterprise software field, as the company reinvents this market by drastically simplifying and securing complex business processes.
Before joining Stratumn, Jérôme was Vice President EMEA for Tidemark (cloud- based enterprise solutions). He spent over 20 years in leadership positions in the enterprise solutions field: he setup North American start-ups in Europe (OutlookSoft and Clarity Systems acquired by SAP and IBM) and has also worked in leading sales positions at Microsoft and IBM. He holds a degree in Political Science from Paris Sorbonne University.
As a new member of the Board of Directors, William Mougayar will provide advice and support in order to carry out Stratumn’s mission to market its powerful technology, based on blockchain networks and advanced cryptography, for inter-business process security, automation and traceability.
In addition to his functions at Stratumn, William is the Managing Partner of Geneva- based JM3 Capital, a former special advisor to the Ethereum Foundation, and a Board member/advisor to leading companies in the Blockchain ecosystem (including OB1, OMERS Ventures, Coin Center, Bloq and more recently XCHNG). He is an investor in OpenBazaar, CryptoKitties, Filecoin, Blockstack, and recently wrote The Business Blockchain (Wiley, 2016), a widely read blockchain book that has been translated in 10 languages.
Richard Caetano, Co-founder and CEO of Stratumn stated: “I am pleased to welcome William and Jérôme to our team. Thanks to their experience and knowledge in the enterprise business and blockchain technology fields they will play an important role in helping Stratumn to structure its organisation and gain widespread adoption of its technology.
