About the Moderator


Jennifer Schünemann is a publisher, mentor, and proven, successful entrepreneur in the world of international medical publishing. Her early contributions include work on an international HIV/AIDS research project at the Harvard School of Public Health, and heading the international business development department at the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. She started her first company at age 32. In 2014, she sold The Goodwin Group International to the world’s 5th largest journals publisher (SAGE Publications Inc.). At the time of sale, Ms. Schünemann’s hallmark publication, MD Conference Express, reached more than 1 million medical practitioners in more than 95 countries, in 16 languages. This unique project pioneered a completely new way of communicating pre-published data from international medical conferences, and was named the official publication of 23 of the most prestigious medical societies in the world – including the European Society of Cardiology and the American Diabetes Association.

Ms. Schünemann speaks four languages, and has traveled to 52 countries. She holds a dual Bachelor’s of Arts Degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and has studied and lived abroad in Paris, France where she took courses at the Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po). She is a Chairman Circle member of the French Heritage Society, and a member of the American Friends of Lafayette.

Le Business, a Series

Forty years ago, Général Georges Doriot took the helm as President of the French Cultural Center. French-born Doriot is regarded as a pioneer of venture capitalism, a legendary Professor Emeritus of the Harvard Business School, and one of the founders of l’Institut Européen d’Administration des Affaires, which is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in the world.

In honor of his legacy, the French Cultural Center / Alliance Française of Boston and Cambridge and The French American Chamber of Commerce of New England proudly present a special series dedicated to French and American perspectives on business—from startups, healthcare, and biotech, to cross-cultural challenges in a global economy.
