Responsible Advisory

About us

NYO is a consulting group for the detection and responsible development of innovative and high-impact projects in Africa and Europe on behalf of private and public financiers.

The conviction that guides us: creating financial and societal value by activating bridges between the two continents either way.

We step in for our financier clients according to 4 main lines of action:

Societal due diligence
Projects are audited to assess their quality and potential; to this end, we are supported by our incubator networks and universities active in West Africa to determine the project’s scale of impact and innovation

    Project detection in West Africa (Togo, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mali)

    Finance engineering : proposal of responsible co-financing models (public funds / private funds); creation of consortia

throughout deployment in order to track the efficient allocation of funds and the implementation of the project until its actual success, as well as coaching and training project promoters to improve the project performance and impact.

Eager to accelerate collaborative and co-development measures to promote the quality and impact of projects, we have created the NYO Open Collaboration Platform, to establish contact between project promoters, associations, experts, coaches and academics.

We work on a fee pay basis, depending on the size of the project.
We keep actions dedicated to the development of African micro-entrepreneurship or micro-associations within our scope: they remain volunteer based.

We work alongside :

European public organizations (European Union, French development agency ...) towards their development projects of the African continent.
• More and more private investors and investment funds to turn towards Africa, for their societal development projects and sponsors.
• European foundations and associations.

Our values


Both towards the financers and project promoters to create the best possible partnership; and the project itself, responsible for the change and impact towards the development of its ecosystem.


Nyo is also the conviction that it is possible to accelerate, to strengthen the development of the African continent. Our determination to move forward, our financiers’ determination, the determination of entrepreneurs and associations to grow.


Ultimate driving force of our actions, which pushes us forward; passion of foundations and NGOs for the development of Africa


Whether technological, social or organizational, innovation is what drives our actions. Seeing things differently is the beginning of impact. Specifically, it reflects a certain form of intelligence both from our project promoters and the methods we use to find solutions in the field, moving the project forward and making it happen.
