Sami Benchekroun

Co-founder and CEO, Morressier

Sami Benchekroun is the CEO and cofounder of Morressier, the company that is bringing academic conferences online. His work as a technical consultant at academic conferences during his studies inspired him to launch Morressier when he saw first-hand how outdated the conference system and scientific publishing was as a whole. Sami founded Morressier in 2014 and today the company works with over 300 conferences worldwide as a first step towards becoming the hub for early-stage research. Morressier is backed by funding from Redalpine and industry expert angel investors. Previously, Sami studied business at ESCP in London, Paris and Berlin.
