Vincent Lagarde

The visionary, the adventurer and the founder
Vincent Lagarde, a trained Plastics Engineer, is the Founder of NATEC Medical Ltd. After a scientific baccalaureate and advanced Math preparatory classes (referred to as a prépa) he enrols in the Ecole Nationale des Arts & Industries with a focus on Plastics Engineering.

He holds a dual degree in Polymer Science and Engineering (ENSAIS & EAHP, France).

He specialises in polymer, discovering this substance during an innovative time period, which enables him to create his first coronary dilatation catheter in 1993.

From 1993 to 1998, he is a Senior Project and Development Manager at Nycomed Amersham, where he develops patented technologies still used today.

Welcome to Vezo country for an unprecedented, privileged and refined experience. The Five Senses Lodge, tucked away from civilization and tourist circuits, on the wild and spectacular southwest coast of Madagascar, gives new meaning to the concept of exclusivity. This stunning seven-room Eco Lodge is an elegant and intimate getaway, with uninterrupted views of the crystalline lagoon, where time seems to have paused. Eco Lodge Five Senses, a project that is very close to Vincent Lagarde’s heart, was built with the desire to seamlessly integrate the surroundings and nature, while also respecting the traditions of those who have inhabited this region for centuries.

Eager to provide the best schooling to his children in Tamarin, Vincent Lagarde founded Paul et Virginie Preschool and Elementary School, the 5th private school on the island to offer a French program since 2003. Paul et Virginie is a Mauritian private school with the legal status of a non-profit company. Its founding members, who make up the Management Committee of the school, manage and run the school pro bono. The organization has signed a partnership agreement with the Agency for French Education Abroad (Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger), which awarded the “Approved Institution” label. In return, the school pledges to implement the syllabus, timetables and academic calendar recommended by the French National Education.
