WOW!LABS

Charlotte Hochman’s expertise is in developing tools and projects to catalyse people’s capacity to innovate and create start-ups in response to global challenges. 


She has collaborated across sectors to build enabling environments for innovation and entrepreneurship, namely with the public sector (US State Department, City of Paris, Région Ile-de-France), corporate companies (Generali, Danone, GDF-Suez, Arthur Andersen), non-profits and universities (INSEAD, HEC, École Normale Supérieure). 


Wow!Labs’ initiatives under her leadership include carrying out an ambitious project with the Obama administration and Babson College aimed at creating innovation hotspots in Malaysia, and founding PLACE.
