Venia International, the global consulting firm founded by Sebastien Clamorgan in the late Nineties, played the role of deal maker, broker and representative of a stakeholder’ interests in the Badagry MegaPort and Free Zone in Nigeria.
Badagry is a coastal town in Lagos State (Nigeria), on the bank of a system of creeks, lagoons, and waterways: this is the place chosen for the Badagry MegaPort and Free Zone, a project aimed at developing the biggest and most advanced sea port in Africa. Overseen by the Nigerian Port Authorities and developed through a partnership between private entities, Badagry MegaPort aims at creating a strategic place for development in the country: in order to achieve this target, the project assembled a consortium of some of the largest and most successful companies in Nigeria. This is the framework where the global consulting and investment firm led by Sebastien Clamorgan – Venia International – played the important role of deal maker, broker and representative of a stakeholder’ interests. The firm, indeed, in addition to supporting the development of business activities and the creation of new companies in the MENA region, is as well active in building international joint ventures in the field of port management. In particular, the Badagry MegaPort and Free Zone is designed to allow companies to take advantage of worldwide assets and expertise while conducting business on a local level, in order to create the solutions needed to support a strong growth in Nigeria.
