Mélanie PERON

President & Founder

After starting her career in developing access to culture, Mélanie Péron ventured into entrepreneurship in 2011 and founded « l’Effet Papillon », now known as « Butterfly Therapeutics ».

A personal experience with a hospitalized patient close to her provided the energy to conduct over 10 years of research, resulting in the creation of Bliss DTx, a digital sedation solution.

In September 2021, in recognition of her commitment to the healthcare field, she was awarded the Knight of the National Order of Merit by Professor Norbert Ifrah, President of the National Cancer Institute.
