The Founders

Les Ingéniaux were created by Sibylle and Francesco Pandolfi in 2018.

Francesco, born Italian, is a mechanical engineer with an extensive background in automotive and robotics. After 15 years devoted to development and innovation in the industry, he decided to bootstrap his own business project by leverage his technical knowledge to promote his values: contact with others, knowledge sharing, joy of making.

Sibylle, antique bookseller in Paris, is no less passionate about new technology. She sees Les Ingéniaux as the realm of creativity, invention, computer science & technology to serve imagination… a reconciliation of science and magic!
