Mayel De Borniol's Summary

Hello! I'm Mayel, co-founder of Babelverse – the universal translator for spoken communication, powered by polyglots around the world – a revolutionary global startup. Here's a glimpse of my interesting journey and wide range of experiences in the startup and tech worlds.

We have presented Babelverse at dozens of international conferences and various events, won some awards (TechCrunch Disrupt, LeWeb, TheNextWeb, etc), and gotten plenty of press coverage (CNBC, FastCompany, etc). We've been seed funded by Startup Chile, 500 Startups (Dave McClure) and SV Angel (Ron Conway).

I'm a glomad (a word I made up), French originally but living abroad much of my life, I'm a travel addict. An entrepreneur with an activist streak, I love taking things apart or inventing new ones and enjoy photography and (watching & making) films...

I consider myself a "MacGyver" – quickly finding hacks or solutions to any technical or other problem – with duct-tape programming methods, which allows for the rapid creation of innovative and feature-rich applications, leveraging and bringing together the latest advances of any relevant open-source projects, open APIs, (draft) industry standards, research, cloud services, etc. It's like playing with lego. I like creating "working prototypes" of new tools and services.

I’ve been in charge of everything from product design to coding, pitching to fundraising, hiring to project management, cloud/server setups to system admin, community building to creating a movement, branding to PR to social media, marketing to sales to customer service, etc...


Innovation – making the future happen sooner.
Media – immaterial, long tail, copyleft, cultured.
Internet – my secondary brain.
Mobile – one step away from the cyborg human.
Technology – open, disruptive, singularity, buzzwordy.

Imagination – it keeps me up at night.
Problems – let's talk solutions.
Impossible? – I take that as a challenge.
Ideas – I simply love building them.
