As a mechanical engineer and MIT graduate in management science, Borschberg has also started and managed several companies, including a risk capital venture and two technology firms. Like Piccard, he's devoted himself to social causes and has worked on behalf of Restos du Coeur (Restaurants of the Heart), a French charitable group that distributes food to the poor and homeless.
