GRADUATES NETWORK SECTION
Rachel DELACOUR Co-founder of BIME Analytics & General Manager. Programme Grande Ecole graduate
This passionate, proactive thirty-year-old fearlessly pursued her career goals head on. Braving the male-dominated world of new technologies, adopting international aspirations in the face of France's excess caution...she let nothing stand in her way. While equality is becoming evermore widespread, stereotypes seem harder to shift. "I'm turning the situation to my advantage to stand out from the crowd". This woman is now CEO of the business she founded with her husband in 2009. BIME Analytics, which broke the codes of business intelligence, delivers its business-intelligence service to the four corners of the world and boasts an impressive partnership with Google. This young entrepreneur has also opened a subsidiary in Kansas City, Missouri. "We have a small office in San Francisco too," adds this young mother who lives with her family in Montpellier. Recognising the potential of this successful duo from the outset, the French Ministry of Research awarded them for their work in 2009. They have since claimed various other rewards for their achievements, including many international awards. A remarkable symbol for this 2003 KEDGE BS graduate: "By opening the door to large groups, the School allowed me to pursue my goal of conquering the international market". Rachel has very fond memories of her years in Marseilles and Canada. "I met my husband and many of my friends there". An impressive network where, to this day, friendship goes hand in hand with professional cooperation. One of the school's strengths, this business leader was part of the delegation that accompanied François Hollande to Silicon Valley in 2014.
