"IDROGENIA marks a significant milestone in our commitment to actively contribute to the energy transition. We are convinced of the power of hydrogen and its potential to shape a cleaner and more sustainable energy future"

The Mentor Group is a family holding company founded in 1998 by Benoit MICHAUX. Specialized in support in all its forms, the Mentor Group’s mission is the creation, acquisition, or investment in the capital of companies with the aim of accelerating and structuring their development on a national and international scale.

In a few key figures, the Mentor Group represents:

7 business sectors, 30 professions, over 2000 employees, and a presence in 15 countries.

"Hydrogen holds tremendous potential to disrupt the way we produce, store, and utilize energy. With IDROGENIA, we are providing ourselves with the technical and financial means to explore the entire value chain of this emerging industry.”

Christophe Hecker is a self-proclaimed autodidact. He started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 22 in the financial sector, where he would evolve for over 15 years. He later assumed the position of Head of Development at the M&A firm CAIRUS (Mentor Group). 

In addition to his professional activities, Christophe has developed a passion for energy since 2014 when he wrote the book “Shale Gas and Oil : Global Revolution and French Denial.” In this work, he foresaw the energy revolution that will be brought by the exploitation of shale hydrocarbons in the United States, making it the world’s leading oil producer and a major gas exporter. The book received the special jury prize of the TurgotLes Echos Award in 2015, an annual accolade for the best economic essay. 

Fascinated by the strategic dimensions of the energy sector in economic, geopolitical, and environmental terms, Christophe is convinced from the early stages of hydrogen development that this resource would be the next energy revolution and the cornerstone of an indispensable energy transition.
