Sebastien Clamorgan is a well-known businessman and entrepreneur with a background experience of more than 25 years of professional activity. He operates in the fields of consultancy and representation of multinationals, private equity, shipping & logistics to infrastructure, food & beverage, and real estate. He is the owner of Venia International, a global consulting and investment firm he founded at the end of the Nineties, which is recognized today as a reference point in the Middle East and North Africa Region. Helping global brands to establish themselves and to capitalize on the business opportunities throughout the reference area, Venia International plays a crucial role in creating and developing new companies.

On the strength of its more than 3,000 people employed, the services provided by Sebastien Clamorgan’s firm include supporting its partners in developing planning processes and growth roadmaps, and providing advice on the most suitable approach for profitable business: this is aimed at opening the doors to companies’ successful market entry. Furthermore, by providing key insights into markets and by means of its wide regional know-how regarding the Middle East and North Africa, the firm supports the creation and development of new companies. In addition, it offers companies local content to ensure that they are aware of and comply with the relevant policies and regulations of the countries where businesses are run.

Over his long-lasting activity, Sebastien Clamorgan set up partnerships with relevant global players, such as joint ventures with companies dealing with sectors such shipping, port management, logistics, food and beverage, and airport duty free. Among the others, an important partnership is the one built in Africa with Eat’n’go, a restaurant group dedicated to bringing Food & Beverage brands to Africans. Venia International’s support led Eat’n’go to achieve the goal of becoming the premier food operator in Africa, as well as the exclusive master franchisee for two big international companies: Domino’s Pizza, a $6 billion fast food giant, and Cold Stone Creamery, a $1.5 company in the ice cream business. Sebastien Clamorgan’s firm and Eat’n’go followed as well the Slum2School initiative, a project related to the educational sector and aimed at supporting children into school and improving education in Nigeria. The initiative was carried out in close collaboration with Eat’n’Go and in a joint venture with the global consulting and investment firm as a shareholder. The partnerships built by Venia International include projects in the field of port management, such as the Badagry MegaPort and Free Zone project, where it played the relevant role of deal maker, broker and representative of a stakeholder’ interests.

Following its strong economic growth, Venia International is keeping on launching projects and building joint ventures within different industry segments and sectors. Its support plays an increasingly relevant role in the MENA region, and, as a result of this, the global consulting and investment firm is now considered to be the handpicked partner of choice for international companies whose aim is to establish themselves in the Middle East and North Africa region.
