VALÉRIE COTTEREAU, our CEO
Valérie Cottereau began her career in several architect's offices in Rennes, France. But her taste for innovation and challenge finally leads her to create Artefacto in 1998, as 3D software were emerging. Fifteen years later, Artefacto became the pioneer in outdoor 3D augmented reality.
In 2013, her career was rewarded by the Oscars of Ille-et-Vilaine jury, and Valérie was awarded the Master of Science and Technology Oscar. She also became a member of the board of the higher education institution, the Ecole Normale Supérieure, ENS Cachan-Rennes.
Strengthened by this constant growth, Valérie decided to build Artefacto headquarters, giving the new offices a new identity. The same year, Artefacto opened an office in New York City, USA. Artefacto is now exporting its expertise and technologies in many countries.
