Grégory Giovannone and Nicolas Dubost

This month we crossed the Isère border to meet a new Lyon concept: Pepitelab, a digital studio that relies on freelancing to help SMEs in their digital transformation.

Specialized in change management, Pepitelab has set up an internal team of “product makers”. They work within SMEs to co-construct digital strategies and their roadmaps with employees. These are then put into operational execution by a network of “Tech freelancers” at the forefront of new trends.

Digitization of customer relations, business processes, integration of new generation ERP, launch of new digital business models… digitization is at the heart of the concerns of managers. However, according to the BPI France Lab, 87% of French SMEs have not yet gone digital. Pepitelab is therefore positioned as an accelerator of digital transformation.

Who does what with my data? Where are they going? How can I ensure that my data is used correctly? How can I really decide what to share and to whom?
