We combine African investigative and analytical expertise with a highly practical understanding of how businesses can navigate the challenges of working in unfamiliar markets.

Leoht Africa provides expert digital information and insights, consultancy and research services to help companies operating in specialist African markets make better informed decisions, spot opportunities and gain competitive edge. 

Leoht Africa works directly with private sector firms, governments, and industry associations to support their international expansion strategies. This involves helping them prepare for the market, identifying suitable target markets, insights and market entry support via direct export, trade shows, distribution, acquisition or direct investment – and implementation support.

We provide insight-focused platforms that provide market analysis, to intelligence products that provide real time data and bespoke solutions including consultancy and direct access to experts.


Partnering with customers

In every specialist sector, businesses look for timely, relevant and high quality information and data to inform their commercial decisions, validate investments, identify new opportunities, win business and operate more effectively.

We continuously invest in our platforms and products, to maintain quality and deliver data and information in an ever more valuable way for customers.
