Who We Are

Abby Klein
Co-Founder of OuiStart Media, Co-host of Radical Departures

Abby is American, moved to Paris for a Master’s degree program in international development, and never left. Her admiration and fascination for the entrepreneurial spirit was sparked way back when she was 16 and working for a no-nonsense, independent caterer who did everything her own way.

Abby has found a home now in the French startup ecosystem, and hopes OuiStart Media will help shine a light on good people creating positive change.
