Welcome to DISCOP | Your one-stop shop to do business in Sub-Saharan Africa.
With over 1.2 billion people, lower internet costs, rising mobile connectivity and the desire to improve the regulatory environment, Sub-Saharan Africa is the world’s fastest growing entertainment and media marketplace. We cover 49 Sub-Saharan African countries and help companies buy, sell and coproduce content. We also make sure deals are closed.
We deliver high-level connections, strategic networking opportunities and access to key players driving content business across the Continent.
We organize markets that bring together global entertainment brands as well as the widest selection of homegrown content. We deliver sales, coproduction and development opportunities in the form of qualified meetings.
Remote and face-to-face meetings are prepared and set-up by an in-house team of ‘personal shoppers’ fluent in French and English. They use the confort of DISCOP CLUB, our online screening platform, to interact with buyers and promote the wide selection of content offered by vendors.
