This is an exciting day for my co-Founder Philippe Corrot and I. We founded Mirakl almost seven years ago because we saw that online marketplaces were going to disrupt commerce forever. We co-founded Splitgames, which was acquired by Fnac, and then went on to operate Fnac's marketplace successfully. We referred to it as their Miracle. We left because we realized we could build a Mirakl for many more companies.
