The business of doing good: a philanthropic start-up to scale up
Delphine Heenen is the mother, founder, director and day-to-day manager of the KickCancer Foundation. Delphine was successively a lawyer (Linklaters), a strategy consultant (Bain & Company) and active in the investment world of renewable energy (TTR energy) when her son was diagnosed with cancer. She first supported Raphaël in his fight by, among other things, decorating his hospital bedroom with hundreds of drawings made by his school buddies. Since January 2017, she decided to change tactics and to move up another gear to fight childhood cancers by working full-time for KickCancer.
