Acting today to secure Africa’s Future
Each day, our actions underline our leadership position. Our values drive us to always evolve and transform alongside the communities that we serve. We strive to implement more environmentally-sound and people-friendly practices; we innovate continually and strategically to answer our markets’ vital needs. Making a large-scale impact requires precise, organized and decisive actions… We get it: that is the reason we set such high standards.
Improve our communities’ quality of life
Our strategy naturally urges increasing access to products and services that improve quality of life
Today, we have our sights on an even greater purpose: to maximize individual wellbeing and continue to serve the greater good synchronously.
In our diverse and dynamic environment, this means constantly innovating our products, our ways of thinking and ourselves.
We explore creative and innovative ways of making our products and services ever more accessible. We connect rural areas to the rest of the world by bringing them adapted, innovative and impactful products and services
Our very own Foundation, tasked with coordinating philanthropic action across all Axian companies, actively seeks partnerships with local and international entities with strong track records in social work for various projects.
Making African Economies More Sustainable
In line with our mission, we actively contribute to making African economies more sustainable, inclusive and prosperous. To us, economic growth must necessarily be all these things, and beneficial to local communities first and foremost. above all, however: economic growth must be driven by innovative and disruptive products and services in the long term.
As enterprising investors, Axian prioritizes projects that have the greatest potential to change lives: our investments bring about infrastructure and solutions that make local enterprises more competitive globally; empower new actors to do business in Africa and make the countries we operate in stand out.
After 2017, Axian began investing in a number of investment funds dedicated to channeling Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) into African businesses, such as Emerging Capital Partners (ECP), ADENIA, DPI, Ametys and PARTECH AFRICA. We aim to become first-rate private-equity and venture-capital investors in Africa. The investments we make as part of this mission will allow us to support entrepreneurs and groundbreaking projects across the continent.
Axian is committed to rewarding courage and initiatives across the continent and paving the way to a new “doing business in Africa” paradigm, one that is grounded in disruptive innovation, inclusion and sustainability.
Building a More Sustainable Continent By Enabling the Green Revolution
Faced with climate change and many other energy challenges that affect the entire continent, we encourage and facilitate an energy transition towards sustainable production and consumption.
As a key player in the energy-solutions market, Axian is committed to advocating for and accelerating the shift from fossil-fuels to renewable energy sources. As energy users ourselves, Axian invests in innovative solutions that are cleaner and more durable. For example, our headquarters have been 100% solar-powered since 2018, and our real-estate cluster remains ever-mindful of energy efficiency across all of our realty projects.
Today, we are collectively promoting and adopting new consumption habits both within our various entities and through our choice of suppliers, our support to environmental initiatives both internal and external, outreach and education advocacy etc…
Democratizing Arts and Culture
Art is special in its power to capture and share the emotions of both individuals and societies, and the H Foundation has dedicated itself to making art and culture more accessible to all. We care about this cause very much, and trhe Foundation focuses on projects such as artist fundraising or creating platforms to showcase artists and their work..
Nurturing, Supporting and Empowering
We are laying the groundwork for economies and societies that are more inclusive and sustainable by creating more accessible pathways to entrepreneurship and enterprise creation and nurturung innovative thinking.
We inspire our partners and our people to think like entrepreneurs by constantly learning and daring. We also encourage them to partake in entrepreneurial ventures, as mentors, guides and enablers of the future. That is part of why Axian is a key player in the entrepreneurial landscape in Madagascar
Axian invests in its people considerably, and provides ongoing learning for emerging skills, trends and duties—not just to future-proof them but also to give them more tools to bring about the future. This training will make Axian´s people key assets to our cause and fast-track their careers, wherever they work.
We have also positioned ourselves as the leading support network for entrepreneurs, irrespective of industry and scope. We launched NextA, a next-gen training and coworking space, and also Africa´s first-ever privately held business incubator. This initiative, among others, once again iterates Axian’s commitment to supporting entrepreneurship as a pillar of innovation and inclusion.
