“Giving back is a way for me to say thank you for everything I’ve received.” Jean-François Marcoux HEC 1995

After obtaining his degree in management and finance, Jean-François Marcoux held a series of senior management positions at several prominent firms. In 2007, he co-founded a company that was a pioneer in game development for mobile and social media platforms. He sold the company to an international consortium in 2010. In 2013, he joined the newly formed White Star Capital as a partner. In this capacity, he draws on his expertise to assist and invest in talented entrepreneurs to help them bring their projects to fruition.

For me, giving back is about…

“I want to give back to the institution that helped make me who I am. This is my way of saying thank you for everything I’ve received.”


HEC Montréal is important to me because…

“I feel a great sense of allegiance to the School because that’s where my passion for entrepreneurship first took root.”


My role as a Governor means…

“The way I see it, there are several dimensions to being a Governor: you’re an ambassador for the School, you’re setting an example for the business community, you’re proof of the value of high education, you’re investing in a new generation of entrepreneurs and you’re encouraging innovation.”
