Fabio Scala is the founder of FurtherMarkets, an Africa-focused consultancy. He is also a board member of Dubai-based Edgebold Group, a holding with an investment portfolio in Southern Africa, where he served as Managing Director for the group’s London family office for the past 5 years.
Previously, Fabio served as the Managing Director of BNI, Mozambique’s investment and development bank, acting as a member of the bank’s founding team, where he was involved in several key Infrastructure and Natural Resource projects.
Before joining BNI Fabio acted as a Senior Manager at Portugal’s Private Equity Fund and as a Board member of many of its portfolio companies. He has also held senior positions in the US after starting his career at Caixa Economica Federal, Brazil’s largest state-owned bank at the time.
With a background in marketing and communication, in 2015 he started FurtherAfrica.com, an online platform centralising news and content focusing on the development and growth of the African continent. Since then, the platform has grown to reach over 70,000 followers and has gained an ever growing following from senior corporate leaders, given the niche content it curates.
“Africa is the future. Equality and integration will allow us to build a road to that future.” Fabio Scala
