US INSEAD Alumni Spotlight – Laurent Baillot

Laurent Baillot, MBA’22J, used to work in Data Science in New York. As a team manager through the peak of Covid, Laurent experienced how remote work can negatively impact connection between team members.

Laurent then came back to native France for INSEAD, during which he co-founded Spaciously with fellow 22J, Hanna. Spaciously offers team events designed for people to connect over things they love: art, food, and music. Their spin is that vendors are exclusively passionate small business owners. They have sold over $100K in events, and are gearing up to become the Airbnb of team building events.
