Manifesto

When it comes to making choices in the world of work, you're on your own. Everyone, from employers to head hunters, talks to you about your professional experience and your future, but none of them are asked to find out what makes you unique. It's not their job.

On our own, we tend to make compromises. We tell ourselves that things aren't so bad, that we have nothing to complain about and that there's more to life than work. That’s when we start to forget who we are and to give up the most important of all personal freedoms: the freedom to be ourselves.

Every time we keep trudging along because we're afraid to ask ourselves the real questions, we leave our personalities further and further behind. Our identities disappear.

Chance's mission is to defend your freedom by making sure you always have someone by your side who's on your side. Up until now, services like ours were reserved for artists and celebrities. Chance is the first agency to work with other kinds of talents. We're an agency that's here uniquely to defend your interests, to identify, create, shape and pursue the right opportunities, carefully aligned with your individuality.

From the intuition of an experienced coach to a powerful network of connections, from applied data to the most advanced cognitive science, using a reverse approach based on what makes you unique, Chance listens to you, explores, certifies, and helps you find the right job and choose the life you want.

This is who we are, and what we do. It's also our invitation to you to join a movement of enlightened people who understand that the value of individuals lies in their futures, not their pasts, and in their differences and particularities, not their similarities.

People are always saying that you are what you do. Are you ready to do what you are instead?

Chance. Do what you are.

Our story

When they met in Dhaka, Bangladesh in June of 2014, Ludovic de Gromard, Pr. Muhammad Yunus and Clémence Coghlan decided to start a social business that would combine psychology and technology to make world-class career guidance accessible to all. Chance was born.

We also have 100 affiliated coaches and a network of over 1,000 professionals in various business sectors. We enjoy the active support of our partners at Google, Facebook and Pôle Emploi.
