Contact

Are you looking to get in touch with me? I get contacted by a LOT of different people for a LOT of different things. And I really want to help, I swear. But unfortunately I don’t have time to meet every single person who sends me an email for coffee, lunch or whatever.

So forgive me if I send this to you but if you contact me using the tips below I’ll be able to follow-up with you faster :)

If you want to know more about why I use this system, you can read this.

Do you need to get in touch with me?

1) Consider asking me your question on Twitter (@roxannevarza) or Quora.

2) If you have a more personal request, you may send me an email. Please send me no more than 3 sentences on what you need (if you send me a longer email, I will ask you to scale it down).

For anything related to Microsoft, please email rvarza (at) microsoft (dot) com. For anything else, please email rvarza (at) gmail (dot) com. Please contact me using email, not Facebook, for professional requests – it helps me stay organized.

3) If you think you may require more of my time, you are welcome to fill out this meeting request form. I will try to respond to you within 3 days. Based on the nature of your request, I’ll do my best to either offer you a group office hours session or an individual meeting of 30 minutes.

Please note that I may not be able to give you an individual meeting at this time – but that doesn’t mean that I would not love to meet you. Feel free to get in touch at an event (you can see all events I plan on attending here). You may also attend a Microsoft Ventures Open Lunch (email msventures-paris (at) microsoft (dot) com for more information), which take place 1x/month.

  1. Bonjour Roxanne,

    I found your site searching for French Entrepreneurs to study. Your page on that was very useful.

    I am fascinated by the world of business and start-ups.

    I also study French language.

    Anyhow, I just wanted to say that I think your website is very good.

    We have very similar interests i would seem.

    Keep up the good work.

    David

  4. Roxanne,
    I do not speak French, although Guy de Maupassant is my all-time favorite writer (I’m sure you’re all over him, but Le Horla is amazing if you’ve never partaken). I am a PR flak for MobilePayUSA, an NFC-alternative mobile payment company. Just wanted to tell you that your site is swank and keep up the great work!

    Best,

    Cass Phillips referred me to you as I am interested in doing a Failcon event in Wisconsin (difficult proposition but I plan to push idea). I looked at the agenda in Paris (BTW, I am a US Delegate to the OECD Sustainable Manufacturing and Eco-Innovation Committee so I get to Paris occasionally and love it). I was wondering if you would be available to discuss challenges and opportunities of putting this conference together and if turnout met your expectations.

  6. Bonjour Roxanne,
    Félicitations pour ton blog ! Je suis encore un rookie dans l’éco système des startups et je viens seulement de découvrir ton blog depuis le site BusinessAngelFr.
    J’ai décidé il y a un mois de lancer le mien et je serais ravi d’avoir ton retour si tu as le temps d’y jeter un oeil : http://myopenlab.com
    Merci beaucoup et tous mes voeux de réussite pour tes nouveaux projets !
    Clément

  7. Hi roxanne,

    En tant que porteur de projet, je ne résiste pas à l’envie de saisir la perche que tu tends à la fin de ton interview avec businessangelfrance.
    Bref, je serais ravis de t’en dire plus, s’il y a une once de chance que je puisse susciter ton intérêt pour mon idée géniale ! (comme toutes)

  8. Hello Roxanne,

    My name is Mark Morrow. I am extremely interested in both France, (I lived there for a bit) and tech (especially all of the cool and interesting new services and wacky start-up ideas that somehow seem to fill a deep void in my life that I never knew was missing.) I am very keen to find a job which incorporates both my love of new, interesting tech ideas and living pretty much anywhere in metropolitan France. I took a look at the “jobs” tab which you have above, however these positions seems to be mostly geared toward programmers/developers, a group to which I sadly do not belong. I was wondering if you happened to know or heard of any positions in France for someone like myself, who finds all of these new ideas and device absolutely enchanting, but is painfully aware he does not possess the technical skill required to create any. I appreciate any advice/reply you may be able to give, and beg you to forgive me if I am being to forward.

    Thanks,

    Mark
