Revolutionize decision making process by providing the world with reliable data related to Africa, and exceptional analytics.
Avako was created to provide business leaders with the most comprehensive understanding of their markets, helping them access reliable market data, and tailoring studies and analyses that meet their specific needs.
The consumers’ behavior is changing constantly with new media communication tools transforming the world. The development and vulgarization of the mobile phone technology have indeed fundamentally reshaped African economies, creating a new way to engage in business. We intend to build our business model on that technology which has filled the gap in informal markets, while striving to maintain traditional ways of gathering information for sensitive data such as political polls or for population who are grounded in an oral culture of communication.
Avako is focused on innovative solutions to stay ahead of evolving market trends, allowing us to provide our clients with usable, practical and meaningful information that help them make strategic business decisions for today and tomorrow.Our technical expertises, our deep industry knowledge, in addition to our local experience, allow us to bring fresh perspectives, creative thinking and Africa-oriented solutions for our clients. Avako will be a data center for information related to people, and to businesses (including for the informal sector where no data is currently available). So, Avako’s overarching mission is to revolutionize decision making process by providing the world with reliable data related to Africa, and exceptional analytics.
Become the main provider of reliable data in Sub-Saharan Africa.
We challenge current and conventional thinking with our innovative design of data collection, data processing and decision-making process well-adapted to Sub-Saharan Africa. We will maintain a focus on gathering and analyzing information from the informal sector which definitely remains the big issue.
