Profile

Frontier MEA is a UK-based research and advisory firm that has undertaken work in some of the world's most exciting and challenging frontier markets.

We provide business information, research and analysis to companies and organisations that are active or interested in frontier markets around the world.

Our core product is a subscription-based information service that focusses on a specific sector in an individual market. We also undertake custom research and advisory projects tailored to individual needs.

As of Q4 2016, we run four subscription services covering Myanmar, Egypt and Libya, with more set to launch before the end of the year.

With staff based in each country that we cover, our focus is on combining local knowledge with international expertise. Over the past five years our team has worked on over 50 projects in frontier markets in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Frontier's founders recognised a need to provide original, on-the-ground research in environments where reliable data is scarce, and those values feed through into all the work we do.
 
We started out by covering Libya in 2009, and in 2013 received funding that allowed us to cover new markets. 
 
In the coming years we have ambitious plans to expand into other frontier economies, focussing on countries and industries with rapid growth and high potential but poor information provision for businesses.
