Our team

We are Dracula Technologies, a deep tech start-up experts in digital printed OPV modules and Inventor of LAYER® technology. For years, our development engineers and professors have worked closely with our scientific and strategic committees that include Academics and Industrialists. Dracula Technologies is supported by Dassault Systems and Airbus. Our technology has led to several patents and we have been awarded during the last Hello Tomorrow Challenge in Paris.

Brice Cruchon - Founder and CEO

When I met Pascal in 2011, he was starting to work on the feasibility of using inkjet to print photovoltaic cells. As a trained chemist, I dreamt of developing a technology that could tackle a wide range of energy issues. That's why at the end of 2011, I decided to launch Dracula Technologies. The development of LAYER® required immense efforts but we have achieved considerable technical feats. Today I am very happy to see the team we have been able to build around this project with the ambition that Dracula Technologies will become one of the major players in the energy transition. This adventure is a reflection of my previous sporting career: for me, a team approach is a driving force behind the success

Marie Chabrolle - OPV Technician

I studied materials chemistry and discovered the world of inkjet thanks to my internship at the end of my studies. After Dracula Technologies was created, I joined the team to use my experience in the inkjet sector to develop the LAYER ® technology. I enjoy working in the R&D field, which I find exciting, and combined with the start-up ethos, it pushes me to go even further.

Jérôme Vernet - VP Sales

In 1992, I joined an innovative SME as part of my work-study program, and I devoted 25 years to turn it into a group with a global reach. At the end of 2016, I was looking for a new challenge. When Brice offered me the opportunity to join Dracula Technologies and contribute to the development of new and promising technology, I jumped at the chance and joined the adventure as an operational investor. Developing and internationalizing our business is a project that really appeals to me. Working in a start-up environment with such different and complementary profiles really is an everyday thrill. What I love doing is taking my "pilgrim's staff" and going to spread the word about our techno to early adopters!

Sadok Ben Dkhil, PhD - CTO

I have always wanted to use the results of my fundamental research activities carried out as part of my doctoral thesis and post-doctoral internships in the field of organic photovoltaics for an actual application. I joined the team as Development Engineer to contribute to the development of LAYER® technology. Today, I am proud to continue this adventure as a CTO and lead, with my team, this technology towards industrialization.

Hugo Leone - Industrial Engineering

With a keen interest in new technologies, when Dracula Technologies offered me the opportunity to work for them as part of my work-study program, I jumped at the chance. The challenge of industrializing a totally innovative technology, in a start-up, is a very enriching and motivating challenge for a first experience in the professional world.

Rahisse Mamod Ramjy - Digital Marketing and IT

Passionate about the world of new technology and digital, I left Reunion Island for my studies in Digital Marketing while starting the adventure at Dracula Technologies. Today, I am proud of what we were able to accomplish and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Cyril Vergnon - Process Manager

With 20 years' experience in special machines, I would like to help Dracula technologies in its industrialization process. The LAYER® project is a project that is really close to my heart due to its Deep tech and very challenging aspects.

Marie-Pierre Reymond - Executive Assistant

I like organizing things to make everyone's job easier, acting as a link between people and co-ordinating everything for greater efficiency. I find it exciting to be part of Dracula Technologies' development and growth. And I love the start-up atmosphere in the company.

Enora Arche - Project Manager

I joined Dracula Technologies for my last internship as a material engineering student specialized in microelectronic and photovoltaic. I wanted to get experience in an innovative start-up where I could use both my engineering and entrepreneurship skills.

Daniel Esteoulle - Impression Expert

After 28 years spent in a worldwide leader inkjet manufacturing company as an R&D manager, I was looking for new professional challenges. I had the opportunity to meet the Dracula team and their projects beginning of 2019. After some exciting discussions with the team, I decided to join the company and to add my competencies and my enthusiasm for the LAYER® project. I’m proud now to belong to this promising startup and to share my personal values as a challenge, team spirit, and trust with the values of Dracula Technologies.

Florence Archet, PhD - Encapsulation Expert

After four years of experience in R&D in organic photovoltaics, I joined Dracula Technologies as a development engineer. I firmly believe that organic electronics will play an important role in many areas in the coming years. Organic photovoltaics in particular is an important field for me and I’m glad to take part in the development of this technology.

Marie Parmentier - NanoChemistry Intern

During my master 1 in nanochemistry, I discovered Dracula Technologies and their impressive technology, which is, for me, a promising solution for all the IoT already present in our homes. They offered me an opportunity to be a part of this adventure through at first an internship and then a work-study program. I'm glad to be able to learn a lot of useful skills with an excellent team from Dracula Technologies.

Ambre Vivier - OPV Technician

Hasan Alkhatib, PhD - Characterization Expert

I have been following the remarkable evolution of Dracula Technologies adventure since 2018 and I am very fascinated by the great progress of the LAYER® project. I joined the challenge of Dracula Technologies with complete confidence that the LAYER® brand will be soon a brand of reference in the Indoor Photovoltaic field.

Kenza Diouf - Encapsulation Technician

At the end of my BTS, I wanted to work quickly as a technician. When Dracula Technologies asked me to work with them to develop new technology, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to put my skills on the company's profile. For a first job, working in a young and dynamic team motivates you to surpass yourself and give the best of yourself to move forward and advance an exciting project.

Anass Khodr - PhD Student

After my master in chemistry, science and energy as well as my two years of engineering in the materials and nanotechnology field , I wanted to take the next step in the research path. So I joined the Dracula family for a PHD project that englobes my passions for new technologies and renewable energies. I am glad for becoming a part of an innovative and motivated team.
