Hussein Omondi

Business development consultant; Founder, Sevora

I am the founder of Sevora, a company based and created in Nairobi, Kenya with the sole mission of building and creating a self-sufficient Africa. With the vast talent and opportunities that are overlooked in Africa, I seek to bridge the gap between Africa and the developed world to create the opportunities that will benefit the African communities, businesses, and people.

After pursuing two master’s degrees from the United Kingdom & France, I further proceeded to provide my business development knowledge working for top international companies such as TOTAL Oil & Gas, Bureau Veritas & AMADEUS IT. It is through this international exposure in my early career that led me start Sevora with the sole objective of helping the continent of Africa realise it has an abundance of potential and richness.
