Sponsored by :




Mirabelle Lamoureux is a young entrepreneur who undertakes ambitious and committed projects. After studying at Paris Dauphine University and HEC business school, she launched a number of non-profit and entrepreneurial projects.  

Now based in Marseille, France, Mirabelle has 3 years' experience at the head of innovative structures. Her background has given her a cross-disciplinary perspective, both operational and strategic, which inspired her to set up her own projects at a very early stage. First with the association Pour Que Marseille Vive, then with the contemporary art label SUPRAMARE Art, Mirabelle is a jack-of-all-trades. She oversees the identity and communications strategy of these organisations, as well as their finances and business models. In the summer of 2023, she took over the management of Keeep, the first distribution platform for 100% refurbished computers (re)made in France for SMEs. Driven by strong values, her ambition is to support SMEs in their ecological transition by enabling them to reduce their digital footprint through refurbishment. Convinced that the circular economy is the best solution for reconciling ecology and economic growth, Mirabelle wants to make refurbished IT a natural reflex for businesses.
