“For some time we have been aware of the challenge companies face sourcing data in this territory. Today, I’m proud to announce we’ve filled in that gap by providing access to all the countries on the continent of Africa.”

Matthew Debbage
CEO of Creditsafe Asia and Americas

Real-time access to business intelligence within Africa comes at a pivotal time. Not only are four of the world’s fastest growing economies located in Africa, but companies reliant on quality business data are optimistic about the role Africa will play in the future of the US economy. On a recent trip, Co-Founder and CEO of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey said “Africa will define the future.”  


“Once again we have listened to what our customers are asking” said Debbage. “Just as they do in other parts of the world, our customers will now be leveraging the highest quality business data to increase confidence in their decisions when trading internationally.”
