Co-founder and CEO
Co-founder and Director of Platform & Infrastructure
The idea of Aircall was born at the eFounders studio in Paris in 2014. Recognizing that a telephone system is complex and expensive to set up, the co-founders set themselves the challenge of revolutionizing corporate telephony. In just a few weeks, they built the first version of Aircall. As they realized the potential of their idea, the four entrepreneurs started facing technical and operational challenges.
How do you deliver the best possible call quality from various environments and local providers? How do you develop a reliable and durable architecture in a constantly changing space? Completing 500 startup's 2015 Batch in San Francisco, Olivier Pailhes, Jonathan Anguelov, Xavier Durand and Pierre-Baptiste Béchu then raised $2.75 million to make their project a reality. In 5 months, the team grew from 5 to 15 people and the turnover tripled. Aircall's success story had just begun.
