In addition to his entrepreneurial journey, Thibault Lanxade has always been involved in collective action serving SMEs. From 2013 to 2018, he was vice-president of Medef in charge of the entrepreneurship, thus a spokesperson for the entrepreneurial spirit in France. Appointed ambassador for profit-sharing and participation in February 2019 by Bruno Le Maire and Muriel Pénicaud, he pursues his mission of defending entrepreneurship by supporting SME managers in sharing value with their employees. He is also president of the support committee of the Clinatec Endowment Fund since early 2019, for which his mission is to develop the circle of patrons to accelerate research and offer new innovative treatments to patients.
