Seven Nigerian Firms Among Fastest Growing Companies in Africa in 2024

Seven companies in Nigeria are part of the top 29 fastest growing companies for the year 2024 according to a list compiled by the British Media Company, Financial Times.

The report, which examined over 100 companies across the continent, considered various parameters including sectors, years of establishment, number of employees, and compound annual growth rates to rank the companies.

In addition, the report also covered sectors such as e-commerce, food and beverages manufacturing, energy and utilities, and real estate, among others.

The top-ranking firms include companies from Nigeria, Mauritius, South Africa and Egypt.

The report noted:

“Nigeria, one of the continent’s three biggest economies, spent 2023 in economic crisis as prices spiraled upwards and the naira went into freefall.

“Nevertheless, it still had the second highest number of companies in our ranking of Africa’s fastest-growing, compiled in conjunction with research company Statista. South Africa, where growth has also been lacklustre, was home to the highest number.

“Even generally more dynamic economies, such as Kenya — which, like many African countries is labouring under high public debt — struggled to get out of the low-growth doldrums as inflation gnawed at disposable income and the government squeezed expenditure.”

According to the report, seven companies from Nigeria made the top 20 list while over 30 Nigerian companies made the 125 companies list.

Notably, the report stated that Nigeria has the second-highest number of companies on the list, indicating the dominance of the West African country in the economic landscape of the continent.

Nigerian companies captured include sectors such as e-commerce, fintech, logistics, and transportation as well as the service sector.

The seven companies ranked in the top twenty of the list are:

Omniretail Inc.
Moniepoint Inc.
Afex Commodities Exchange Ltd.
Alpha Morgan Capital Managers Ltd.
Mycredit Investments Ltd. (Fair Money).
Thrive Agric Ltd.
Bisedge Ltd.
