Originally from Grenoble, this math and physics student spent time in France and then in Cambridge. After school, she started a career in finance as a trader in sales in London. In 2008 at the beginning of the financial crisis, she said she wanted to use her experiences and become an entrepreneur. With a business partner she launched a telecommuter consulting agency called Greenworking. Then in 2010 she began working on a new project, eWorky, with Olivier Brun and Tahir Iftikhar. Durieu spoke with SmartPlanet about this new venture as she and her cofounders blow out eWorky’s first birthday candle."
