Acting today to secure Africa’s Future
Each day, our actions underline our leadership position. Our values drive us to evolve and transform alongside the communities that we serve. We strive to implement more environmentally-sound and people-friendly practices; we innovate systematically 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 favors access to products and services that improve quality of life.
Today we aim even higher: breaking new ground to empower individuals and tomaximize their wellbeing.
In our diverse and dynamic environment, this means constantly innovating our products, our ways of thinking and ourselves.
We explore creative and innovative ways to make our products 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 actions that more directly target vulnerable groups, continually partners 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 reliable. To us, economic growth must necessarily be all these things, and beneficial to local communities first. More than anything, economic growth must be driven by innovative and disruptive products and services, especially in the long term.
An investor at heart, Axian prioritizes projects with the most transformative potential: our investments bring about infrastructure and solutions that make our local enterprises more competitive globally; empower new actors to do business in Africa and make the countries we operate in stand out.
From 2017 onwards, Axian has invested in a number of investment funds dedicated to investing in Africa, such as Emerging Capital Partners (ECP), ADENIA and PARTECH AFRICA. We aim to become a selective private investor in private-equity and venture-capital funds in Africa. Alongside this status, our investments 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.
Building a More Sustainable Continent By Enabling the Green Revolution
Faced with climate change and many energy challenges that affect the entire continent, we encourage and facilitate an energy transition towards sustainable production and consumption.
As a key player in energy solutions, Axian is committed to accelerating the shift from fossil-fuel energy to renewable energy. As an energy user, Axian invests in innovative solutions that are cleaner and more durable. Our headquarters is 100% solar-powered since 2018. Our real estate cluster remains ever-mindful of energy efficiency in all our projects.
Today, we are collectively promoting and adopting new consumption habits both within our various entitiesand through our choice of suppliers, our support to environmental initiatives both internal and external, outreach and education advocacyetc…
Democratizing Arts and Culture
The H Foundation works to make art and culture accessible to one and all. We care deeply about this cause and through the H Foundation, we launch projects aimed at artist fundraising and training as well as promoting accessibility to art.
Nurturing, Supporting and Empowering
By eliminating barriers to enterprise creation and creating more accessible pathways to entrepreneurship, we are laying the groundwork for a future economic model and a society that are both more inclusive, and more sustainable.
That is why Axian is a key player in the entrepreneurial landscape in Madagascar; 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.
Axian invests in its people considerably, providing 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 them key assets 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 the NextA incubator platform—a next-gen training and coworking space. This initiative, among others, once again iterate Axian’s commitment to supporting entrepreneurship as an engine for innovation and inclusion.
