Rachel Delacour, 41 years old, is a member of the Board of Directors. Together with Nicolas Raspal, Rachel Delacour founded the company behind BIME Analytics, We Are Cloud, in 2009. Their aim was to transform the world of business intelligence (BI) by creating a simple-to-use, accessible and analytically sophisticated cloud BI solution. The company soon developed into an industry disruptor both in France and internationally, and was among the first to put BI into a SaaS/Cloud model. BIME is an acronym for business intelligence made easy.
Unsurprisingly, this French startup success story attracted the attention of bigger players, and in October 2015 the company was acquired by cloud-based customer service company Zendesk (zendesk.com), with BIME Analytics becoming the core technology powering Zendesk’s customer data platform.
Prior to starting BIME, Rachel Delacour worked as financial controller at Carrefour, Bata, and FM LOGISTIC in Russia. Rachel Delacour has been recognized with many awards including, but not limited to, La Tribune Women’s award, French State’s Young Innovative Enterprise Award, and by the French Ministry Of Research. Rachel is a graduate of KEDGE Business School.
As of today, Rachel Delacour is the Co-Founder of Sweep since November 2019. The start-up is dedicated to corporate climate management.
