Jean-Charles Betrancourt, co-founder along with Franck Cortet, Yvan Gainon and Sébastien Buatois of Webcastor.
Without having any particular curriculum other than the Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilisations (Paris), Jean-Charles Betrancourt, was involved in the creation of several advertising and audio-visual production companies. The earliest one just after he left high school. After those first entrepreneur experiences, he worked as an audio-visual manager in a number of international aid agencies (Handicap International, International Campaign to Ban Land Mine). Having seen back in 1998 the possibilities for video streaming with Real Network, he and his associates realised the opportunities that there would be for videos on the web and founded Webcastor.
