Bouquet aims to change the way data analytics is shared, received and understood by combining artificial intelligence, business intelligence, and conversational interfaces to create a new, magical user experience.

“Bouquet brings consumer UX to the enterprise and transforms the way we interact with data,” says Villard.

Villard adds to the mix of entrepreneurs, product managers, data experts and developers who are championing a new, and simple form of data retrieval. His expertise will contribute to the technological development and engineering of the proprietary, state-of-the-art analytics technology, that is Aristotle, to provide a great experience in natural language.

His ability to solve theoretical problems make him a perfect fit for solving and handling the intricacies associated with Aris. His dynamic and malleable way of thinking is what makes him a rock star in his field.

“Creating a quality team is essential for the longevity of a company, especially if it is a startup,” says Adrien Schmidt, CEO and CO-Founder of Bouquet. “An idea will come and go, but the team is what creates the foundation for true innovation. I am fortunate to be working on both a great product with a great team and we are thrilled to have Joffrey join our family at Bouquet.”
