About And Africa
And Africa

And Africa is a consulting and investment advisory firm located in Tokyo, Japan with a branch office in South Africa. Our vision is to be a bridge between Japan, other developed nations, and African countries. Japan has knowledge, technology and capital, but a declining population and stagnating economy. African countries are dynamic and growing rapidly, but lack jobs, technology and capital. We aim to match the needs of both regions to create sustainable and innovative partnerships.

Our Vision

And our mission is to promote industrialization and job creation in Africa.

And also to create exponential growth opportunities for Japanese companies, investors.

Our Mission
  • Industrialization, and contribute to job creation in Africa
  • Development of efficient African start-up ecosystem
  • Create exponential growth opportunities
  • Develop innovative partnerships
