Candice Rosenfeld  co-Founder of Curious

Candice Rosenfeld has a background in law, fashion design and corporate taxation. She has worked mainly as a financial and tax advisor, based in Brussels, with a longstanding focus on companies active in the creative industries.

Gilles Grosjean Nash — co-Founder of Curious and Founder of Bertelles

Gilles Grosjean Nash started his career working for a Belgian bank as a Credit Analyst and then as M&A Advisor, before taking the role of Strategy Advisor with an internationally expanding insurance company. He is an engineer by training but quickly realised his heart lay in more entrepreneurial activities. Passionate about telling brand stories and building strong brand foundations, he co-founded the casual shirts brand Abbie & Rose in 2012, which he sold in 2018. He also founded the accessories brand Bertelles in 2015, which he continues to run alongside his work at Curious.

Together, Candice and Gilles have founded Curious, an agency that enables brands to reach their full potential. Working hand in hand with their clients, they have a dual focus: defining the right strategies for brands and helping create the best operating context for their execution. They work on strategic issues including financing, growth and development, marketing and branding, as well as governance. Their clients are established brands but also early stage projects.
