ManoMano is the first online marketplace specialized in DIY & Gardening. Philippe de Chanville and Christian Raisson launched the site in 2013 to "make DIY easy and affordable for all by bringing together the largest DIY offering online". ManoMano now operates in six countries across Europe with over 1.6 million referenced products and 2000 partner sellers.
The growth and development of the marketplace are closely linked to innovation in processes within the company, with a particular focus on data processing.

At ManoMano we believe that data makes it possible for customer experience to be ten times more satisfactory than in-store, more adapted and much more profound," said Philippe de Chanville, co-founder of ManoMano.
