WELCOME TO INGENIOUS EVOLUTION


Ingenious Evolution is a niche management consulting firm focused on turning legislative compliance requirements into growth opportunities through
a) synergistic re-positioning of our clients’ businesses to ensure compliance; and,
b) providing access to growth capital to achieve revised growth strategies.

We focus on growth strategies that serve businesses, governments, non-governmental organizations, and not-for-profits. In an increasingly complex compliance environment, we find our clients bogged down with demands placed by legislation that is unfriendly to business (even though the intent of the legislation is legitimate). Often, the immediate casualty is growth considerations as compliance takes most of the discretionary work time of senior executives. Our creative, thorough and considered approach helps our clients to forge win-win-win partnerships. This, in turn, allows them to do what they are supposed to: increase shareholder value whilst simultaneously making the society a better place to live in, especially for the poor and disenfranchised.

We also support Multinationals seeking to expand their footprint in Africa but who are unsure of the best approach to comply with local requirements. We have partners in most growth geographies, and are well positioned to find and design synergistic growth models.

INDIGENISATION AND LOCALISATION


One of the important requirements in doing business throughout Africa is adherence to localisation demands. From South Africa through to Egypt, multinational businesses will find it difficult to participate in the formal economy without additional value-add to local residents. Ingenious Evolution has experience in designing and implementing synergistic structures to facilitate equivalent local ownership whilst enhancing the overall business case.

Our approach often involves the design of parallel structures which enables synergies with activities of our clients’ supply chains. As an example, we design venturing programs which allows access to local Entrepreneurs previously unable to participate in formal supply chains. Based on shareholder value created, this provides ownership equivalence to the multinational. It also allows for an overall synergistic relationship, without the multinational having to part with equity.
