Strategy consulting for 21st century Africa

Ideologie International is your specialist consultancy for doing business in modern-day Africa. Africa's population is at a staggering 1.2 billion people. On the import side, this includes a booming middle-income class with an appetite for the foreign goods they see on Google and Facebook. On the export side, it includes a vibrant entrepreneurial community, funded through Kickstarter and foreign VCs, with a unique ability to invent cheap, environmentally friendly solutions while making a social impact.

Yes, Africa is open for business ... but in Africa, business must be done the African way. That is where we come in. 

Our focus is on "1st Movers" that could transform industries, adaptive innovations that could transform whole communities, and high social-impact ideas that could transform entire generations.

Our Mission

Empowering Africa's people through employment by introducing and adapting foreign goods, services, and technologies into Africa. 

Discovering valuable innovations in Africa and assisting its innovators to commercialise them globally. 

Our History

Ideologie International, founded in Cambridge University in 2011, was originally a strategic consultant for European banks, the European Finance Association, members of the British House of Lords, University of Cambridge, and many other top-tier universities, focusing on new markets and innovative research. 

Since moving to Tokyo, Japan in 2014, Ideologie International has transformed itself into a boutique consultancy that bridges ideas and paves partnerships between mainly Japanese and African businesses. Focusing on "1st Movers", our services come in three broad categories:

  • "Think 1st": Market Research & Planning

    Expert local advice and analysis on how our clients' products can launch as a 1st Movers in Africa/Japan

  • "Be 1st": Representation & Execution

    Helping clients expand as 1st Movers, while maintaining a strong project relationship management presence in Africa/Japan 

  • "Be Known as 1st": Thought Leadership & Promotion

    Ensuring that our clients profit from being globally recognized as the pioneer and 1st Mover of their field

In 2016, Ideologie formed a strategic partnership with Defta Partners. As a venture capital firm with over three decades of experience with companies and startups focused on social impact, Defta Partners has a successful track record in developing markets in Southeast Asia and Africa. The marriage between Defta Partners and Ideologie International has created a powerful combined network in the business, political, and academic communities of Asia, Africa, the US and Europe.

Ideologie is also a partner of Alliance Forum Foundation (AFF), a Japanese organization in special consultative status with the United Nations. AFF provides strategic advice as Ideologie strives to create working models of Public Interest Capitalism, which AFF advocates.

Ideologie's "braintrust" in Africa is the African Business Institute (ABI), a graduate business school and business incubator in Uganda. ABI will launch in January 2017, allowing Ideologie to access local African talent and business ideas for potential business ventures with companies in Japan and other developed economies. 

Ideologie now has a team on the ground in the African countries of Uganda and Malawi who specialize on conducting feasibility assessments for foreign firms considering expanding into East Africa.
