Commercialising development in frontier Africa

Phoenix Africa Development Company is dedicated to the reconstruction and development of frontier countries in Africa.


We are building a series of development businesses in the agriculture sector in the most neglected places on the continent. By mobilising international capital for seizing business opportunities in these frontier states, Phoenix Africa aims to become a major force for investing in stability in Africa whilst generating superior returns for our shareholders.
