What we do

altAfrica is a market intelligence service spun out from a London-based consultancy that provided research for businesses either seeking to expand out of Africa, or looking to enter select African markets.

Today, we are a data-driven niche alternative assets platform, tracking company liquidity events in nascent, emerging and mainstream industries for an audience comprising private equity & venture capital firms, impact investors, corporates (for merger and acquisition activity) and their advisers.

Our news service is only the tip of the iceberg, acting as a ‘first port of call’ to our wider research, consulting, training and data services.


In the technology space, we cover the usual
‘column inch fillers’ such as fintech and crypto alongside agritech, edtech, insurtech, logistics and the burgeoning
energy-as-a-service (EaaS), mass transit
and IoT sectors.

Traditional assets

For traditional asset classes, we cover, among others,
fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), manufacturing, chemicals, industrials, construction and
brick and mortar SMEs.


We also cover fund investments, fundraisings and launches for purely African, emerging market, impact and climate change funds.
