Who is ExpandAfrica?

We are a global consulting firm that helps organisations launch and/or expand into the African continent. Our strength lies in our African roots, network, and expertise. No organisation gets a second chance at a first impression. We combine international and country specific local experience, to make sure you get it right the first time.

Why Expand Africa?

We treat each country as a sovereign state with its own culture, legislation, business ethos, financial processes, and nuances, which can make or break your place in the African market. We have an extensive network positioned to help African organisations access new markets and international companies enter the region or grow their presence.

Fastest growing continent

Why Africa?

Africa is rapidly transforming into one of the fastest-growing regions in the world and although the potential for highly profitable foreign investment in Africa is vast, many investors remain wary, largely due to the continent’s negative reputation and political minefields. However, while the challenges and risks are real, the potential rewards are too.

Average growth on the African continent over the past decade, one of the fastest growth levels in the world. 

By 2050, Africa’s 1.1 billion person population is expected to double, with 80% of this growth occurring in cities, bringing the continent’s urban headcount up to more than 1.3 billion. The population of Lagos alone is growing by 77 people per hour. According to McKinsey, by 2025 more than 100 cities in Africa will contain over a million people.

The darkest thing about Africa has always been our ignorance of it.”
