Xavier Corman
Entrepreneur, Coach, Financial expert, CEO at eDebex.com

After gaining a degree in International Relations from Université Catholique de Louvain, Xavier Corman wasted no time setting up his first communication firm. In 2008-2009, he completed an Executive Master’s in Finance at Solvay and, from 2009 to 2013, worked as a freelance CFO supporting businesses in difficulty and high-growth companies. 
His enthusiasm for technology naturally guided him towards web start-ups and, since 2009, he has garnered renowned expertise in the financial management of SMEs and their cash flow problems. 
In 2013, he, along with 3 co-founders, launched Edebex.com - a quick, secure and efficient solution for companies wanting to optimize their working capital and improve their treasury and liquidity management. Edebex gives companies a platform for selling their receivables (invoices) to cash-rich investors looking for investment.
