Back Market wants to make buying refurbished electronics safer and easier for customers. Three French friends, Vianney Vaute, Quentin La Brouster, and Thibaud Hug de Larauze, cofounded the company in 2014. Rather than selling refurbished items itself, Back Market vets thousands of tech sellers worldwide. It connects consumers with trusted merchants, giving them confidence in every purchase. Back Market also emphasizes environmental responsibility. By encouraging people to buy refurbished goods, Back Market helps reduce the massive amounts of electronic waste produced each year.
