Founders

Anne-Sophie Le Bloas

Co-Founder & CEO

"I created Ravacan because I spent too much of my time dealing with repetitive tasks instead of focusing on purchasing strategy. I want all procurement managers to have more time to think outside the box."

Anne-Sophie has 13+ years of experience in sourcing and procurement of materials and goods. She has worked in France, Spain, Germany and the U.S. for firms such as SNCF (railways), Engie (energy), Reckitt-Benkiser (FMCG), Rolls-Royce (aeronautics), Visteon (automotive) and Fitbit (consumer electronics).

Anne-Sophie holds two Masters degrees, including a specialized degree in Sourcing from the reknown MAI Bordeaux.

She is also a trained software engineer.

Benjamin Beguin

Benjamin is a passionate, inquisitive and organized Software engineer, who loves new challenges. His years working in development studios allowed him to build a broad knowledge of web technologies. He has a particular knack for user experience (UX).

He holds an engineering degree from HETIC, Hautes études du numérique in Paris, with a specialization in digital communications and management. Ben and Anne-Sophie have known each other since childhood.

Advisors

Noah Eisner

Advisor - Co-Founded Coupa Software

Noah has over 20 years of experience in B2B software. In 2005, he co-founded Coupa Software (COUP) and grew the company from the initial concept to 100's of customers. In addition to founding Coupa, Noah previously held leadership roles at Amazon Web Services and Oracle.

"I don't often decide to get involved with a company after a first meeting, but Ravacan was different. Right from the start, I could tell that Anne-Sophie had a potent combination of 1) deep experience with Fitbit, Rolls-Royce, and others, 2) passion for solving a critical business need, 3) technical expertise, and 4) the ability to listen to her customers and advisors. I've loved the procurement and supply chain space for over 20 years. We're at a point where the supply chain shock has become commonplace, with tariff wars, the coronavirus, and oil wars being recent examples. I think Ravacan can be the critical agile supply chain business system that's required for 21st-century buyers and their suppliers."

Noah holds over a dozen patents graduated with a BS in Operations Research / Industrial Engineering from Cornell University and an MS in Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management from Stanford University.

It’s time we help procurement experts do less repetitive tasks so that they focus on building better relationships with key suppliers. Companies need procurement more than ever."
