Recently graduated in finance at the ESSEC school, Paul attended universities among the most prestigious, e.g Cambridge and Harvard, in which he acquired key knowledge as he leads the CAPS project
Once graduated his master, he joined the Ecole Polytechnique as a physicist PhD student. In the mean time, Kevin also attends finance classes, dispensed online by the University of Leicester.
Pierre De Châteaubourg
Pupil from the Ecole Normale Supérieur, Pierre has quiet an eclectic study path, and gathered skills in multiple scientific fields from different foreigner universities in the likes of Harvard.
Everythings started in 2018 when we met for the first time at ENS' physics classes. We are three young scientists passionated by new technologies and our shared passion immediatly united us. Being parisian students, we noticed the growing problematic of urban transportation, the infrastructure saturation and the over-poluted air, those during our daily trajects. As young concerned people, we started to look forward for an alternative that would be fueled by recent technological improvements. Because we were within the most renouned laboratories, we observed directly major breakthrougs in the likes of the batteries' density field.
At this time we thought that it was time for urban transportation to relocate into the third dimension: the sky.
Motivated by the passion of aeraunotics, we imagined a brand new generation of aircraft that bases its technology on drone systems. Analyzing the roots of urban displacements, we noticed that, interestingly, citizens achieve 70% of their daily travelss alone; while almost none of urban transportation tools are single-passengers (such as cars).
Time has came: we invented the CAPS' solution, designed for single passenger trips, in urban areas, the aircraft owns the double advantage of being small and entirely electric leading to a quiet flight with the optimum security, provided by an entire aircraft parachute.
Our dream is to succeed in providing a new way of transportation for cities. It is hard, today, to grasp the tremendous impact that such a change in our means of transportation could have on our lives. Flying has always been a human fascination and we aim to make it a daily reality for most of us. One of our major goal is to implement that system at the lowest price possible, to provide a popular service that do not addresse high-net-worth individuals only.
