about

photo apolline rigaut(marinière) sur fond bleu clair

Hey you!

I’m Apolline Rigaut, a literary freelancer specialised in content creation, entrepreneurship & design. I’ve spent most of my masters degree at emlyon business schoo away from school ‚Äď class of 2021.  I left the comfort of theory in 2017 when I had the opportunity to join the first cohort of thecamp creative residency program (HIVE) in Southern France. There, I gained hands-on experience in developing and leading entrepreneurial projects.

I then decided to join makesense in order to better understand what processes are really at stake when creating your own venture and help young entrepreneurs blossom. This is where I discovered Alphonse where I facilitated programs while reflecting on my love for content creation/marketing.

To keep on putting into action what I Iearn on entrepreneurship and content, I created Our Millennials Today in 2018. This project is a now growing media collecting young graduates’ stories about career orientation. Since then it has evolved into a newsletterpodcasta collaborative webzine and an auto-coaching program, La Culbute (all in French) diving deep into our orientation mechanisms. 

Today I also use this learnings to provide freelance services revolving around vocational and content creation. These include: branding, copywriting or coaching (both people, willing to better understand younger generations about to enter the job market or people looking for a swimming buddy). 

I’m passionate about learning new things, connecting with new people and creating content to share that knowledge (keynotes, workshops, writing, etc.).

Working in pluri-disciplinary teams drives me, as building bridges between disciplines and methodologies. I think this appeal comes from my rather eclectic background in literature and management. During my HIVE residency, I started to explore a new field: design. Not only does it teach me better ways of being more user-oriented, it also helps me to focus more on solving a problem fast and efficiently. 

I’m always on the lookout for new adventures / challenges & people to meet, so don’t hesitate to reach out!
