About us

Our mission is to empower exceptional entrepreneurs to succeed internationally through smart money and our curated community of investors. To do so, we have built the 3 elements of OneRagtime for entrepreneurs, investors and corporates alike: our Platform, our Studio and our Advisory.
We strongly believe that the key to success for our start-ups is to be supported and backed by the right people. This is what the OneRagtime community is about. Our start-ups have access to capital, contacts, knowledge and operational resources to become the next global champions.
For investors, we offer a prime deal flow carefully scouted and selected by our team with strict due diligences. We negotiate terms that are inaccessible to individual investors and offer a seamless, fully digitalised investment process.


We are a team of tech-savvy talent and experienced senior executives. Founded by Stéphanie Hospital and Jean-Marie Messier, OneRagtime is also guided by our wise Godfather, Philippe Bourguignon, and gathers superstar mentors such as Patrick Sayer and Laurence Bret.
