Our Reach

The potential

Consumer spending accounts for 60% of African economic growth, $680B of which is driven by the middle class alone

Investor, global economy, Copia Global

The global economy is missing out on a massive, untapped, high growth market opportunity. There are 750 million middle and low-income African consumers who spend $680B per year. Formal retail and e-commerce cannot reach the vast majority of them, but Copia’s mobile commerce platform can.

Leveraging a network of digitally-enabled, locally based Agents who operate as ordering and delivery points, we meet consumers where they are – online or offline. Despite poor road infrastructure and no addresses, we have facilitated innovative tech-enabled logistics operations that achieve fast and convenient delivery costs.
