Ten years after its creation, Sewan now has over 600 employees and a network of 1,000 distribution partners.
With a turnover of €135 million in 2020, and major international development via the acquisition of Vozelia in Spain, 3StarsNet in Belgium and 42One in Germany, Sewan is now one of the leaders in the BtoB telecoms market in Europe.
But to get there, a long road paved with innovations, CAB meetings and carts has been travelled by the small start-up, which started its adventure by setting up headquarters in a former bakery.
Retrospective on ten years of history:
Sewan is the story of four entrepreneurs who had the idea of simplifying telecoms. The idea of a new generation operator oriented towards users.
It was in 2007 that the project took shape. The young company offered voice, mobile and Internet access services. It was a success, thanks in particular to a differentiating operator model that consisted of offering telephony, messaging, data and collaborative work services to a network of white-label distribution partners. Providing them with 100% automated services became a prerogative, and the single management interface was born: Sophia.
As the years go by, the departments diversify and the teams grow. In order to gain expertise in hosting and data backup, Sewan acquires Navaho, a specialist in these areas.
Ten years after its creation, Sewan intends to continue the international development started in Spain and to export the business model that has made it successful in many other countries.
If today Sewan is one of the leaders in its market, tomorrow... Sewan intends to become the benchmark.
