Genesis Analytics has worked in 90 countries. Our roots are firmly in Africa. We are a truly global African firm.
We look at the world - and the continent - by identifying large opportunities for change, both social and private. Our purpose as a firm is to unlock that massive latent value through a multi-faceted approach that we describe below.
We have expertise in behavioural sciences; competition economics and regulation; climate finance; the digital economy and regulation; economic impact assessment; financial services strategy; human development; monitoring, evaluation and learning; public health and financing; shared value and corporate impact; and youth employment. Some of our best work has been through combining our complementary areas of expertise to find fresh solutions.
Our clients include all levels of government, corporates and banks, development agencies, multilateral organisations, foundations, regulators and law firms.
The critical questions of this century have increased our focus on the triangle of forces that are shaping Africa’s future. These are:
The youth wave arising from Africa’s great demographic transition
Opportunities on the continent from global technological change
Managing and mitigating regional climate change
