Two childhood friends who got together to create Wamiz: Adrien Magdelaine and Adrien Ducousset. Their entrepreneurial personalities led them to work together. A first time in 1999 while launching a start-up and the second time in 2009 when they created Wamiz. Their first name isn’t the only thing they have in common: they are both passionate about entrepreneurship and pets.
Since his childhood, he has always been surrounded by dogs. Adrien created his first company at the age of 20 with Adrien Magdelaine. Then, he worked for Lagardère Publicity for seven years. He was first part of the TV (broadcast) department and then became Assistant commercial director. He decided to leave Lagardère and team up with his childhood friend, to start the Wamiz adventure.
Serial entrepreneur for almost 20 years, Adrien is a huge fan of cats. He started several financial and real estate start-ups before creating Wamiz with his childhood friend.
