Aline Kamakian

Small Business Owner in بيروت, لبنان

Co-founder of FIG holding and owner and general manager of IIC sarl

I founded my own brokerage firm, IIC sarl (Insurance, Investment Consultants), which mainly focuses on corporate insurance. Parallel to this, I co-founded Mayrig, the first Armenian restaurant in Lebanon.

IIC sarl grew into one of the biggest brokerage firms in Lebanon and Mayrig opened franchises in Dubai and is soon opening in Riyadh. I also co-opened Batchig, a Levantine Bistro that offers Armenian cuisine with a twist.

I published “Armenian Cuisine”, a cookbook with small stories.

Awarded “Woman entrepreneur of the year” by BLC in 2015.

Active board member of the Lebanese Franchise Association and the Lebanese League for Women in Business.

My first passion is food and as a proud Armenian I work to preserve and promote the Armenian Culinary heritage. I am also engaged in defending the rights of women and in preserving nature and I advocate for the fair treatment of animals.
