Genesis is a leading impact and strategy consultancy and has worked in more than 100 countries globally. We are focussed on the Young World and we do work that matters!

In a world undergoing convulsive technological and political change, Genesis partners with key actors to deliver urgent, lasting impact in critical areas.

Genesis, an impact firm founded, incorporated, and headquartered in Africa, has worked in 46 African countries, and more than 100 countries globally. Uniquely, Genesis is focused on the Young World – the arc of countries with young populations stretching across Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and parts of Southeast Asia.

By 2030 four in five children will be born in the Young World, making this region central to the future. With growing markets and young, productive populations, Young World countries have the most positive potential trajectory in the world. It is here that investments of all kinds will have the highest social and economic returns.

Our job at Genesis is to help societies, governments, and businesses across the Young World succeed at three fundamental historic transitions:

Reconfiguring economies: Creating income for large, rapidly urbanising youth cohorts within a global economy undergoing profound changes

A human transition: A fundamental rethink of how societies, governments and markets can ensure the health and cognitive and social well-being of all those young people, including the most vulnerable

A just climate transition: Both to decarbonise and to manage the human and economic impacts of a global crisis they did not cause

To do this work, we are building a new type of impact firm.


Genesis offers a wealth of experience in providing strategy support to financial services players, with two decades of experience and over 600 successfully completed projects in Africa and the Middle East.

Our clients are diverse. We assist governments and government agencies in developing long-term strategies aimed at economic development and advise donors in developing their initiatives to better reach their targeted segments.

The team of 40 is currently based in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Kenya, West Africa, East Africa and Europe, and will grow substantially over the coming year. We work across about 50 projects at any one time.
