Laurene Tran

Coordinator of the YSI Innovation Working Group

I work for The Family, a pan-European long-term strategic investor that empowers entrepreneurs through education, services, and capital. 

With young professionals and students, I am working to bridge the gap between the academic world and public debate with the journal Regards Croisés sur l’Economie.

In 2014 together with Besiana Balla I co-founded the Economics of Innovation Working Group.  

My main research interest are :

— The history of innovation studies
— Competition, Innovation, and Regulation in the Digital Economy
— The Political Economy of Asset-Manager Capitalism

I had the opportunity to study economics, business and sociology in Denmark, the U.S, Italy and France.

I also gives lectures at SciencesPo Paris for the course “The Digital Transition of Organisations” within the Master of Public Policy  — Digital New Technology and Public Policy, and the module “How to Build Ambitious Startups in Europe?” at the Public Policy Incubator.
