Olivier Avaro, Chief Executive Officer, Blacknut

Olivier began his career at Orange where he researched on video compression technology. Olivier has been instrumental in managing the MPEG Systems standardization group in ISO. His outstanding contribution ultimately paved the way for the MP4 file format, one of the most popular outcome of his work. Olivier then spun-off technology from Orange and co-founded Streamezzo. The company published an Open Mobile Development platform that allows to easily create Rich Mobile Applications working on all major mobile operating systems. The company was successfully acquired by Amdocs in 2010. As the new Vice President at Amdocs, Olivier initiated a number of intrapreneurial projects, out of which several new companies and business units were created. In 2014, Olivier launched his own private equity fund ‘Skyrods’ which financed a number of innovative start-ups. One of them captures his full attention today: Blacknut, a leading cloud gaming service provider created in 2016.
