Henri Barbe, co-founder of WorkinRacing, is originally from Chantilly, France. Having grown up with both his parents in the horse racing industry, the sport naturally became a passion for him.

He joined ESCP Business School after a preparatory class for the grandes écoles in September 2018. During his first year at the school, he took part in the Championnat des Grandes Ecoles, a sporting challenge reserved for students and young graduates organised by the Club des Gentlemen-Riders et des Cavalières jointly with France Galop. Following this experience, he obtained a gentleman-rider licence (amateur jockey) and joined the Club.

As part of the gap year of his Master in Management, he did a first internship as a financial auditor at Deloitte and then an internship as a fundraising and M&A consultant at AltRaise.

In early 2023, he participated in the launch of WorkinRacing together with Maxime Pasquier.
