The German West African Company, in German Deutsch-Westafrikanische Gesellschaft / Compagnie, was a German chartered company, founded in 1885. It exploited the two German protectorates in West Africa (Togo and Cameroon) but did not actually govern them — unlike its counterpart in German East Africa.


The German West African Company was established as a chartered company with a headquarters in Hamburg. The company was active in both Kamerun and Togoland. Following years of little profits, the company was absorbed by the German Empire on November 13, 1903.


Now modern day Cameroon and part of Nigeria.


Now modern day Togo and part of Ghana.
