As a boutique research and strategic advisory firm built around the mission to empower citizens, and to bring public interest into focus, we help our clients fulfill their missions around emerging technology and social impact by providing world class strategic advice.

With a focus on the role of emerging technologies—like Internet of Things (#iot), smart cities, or artificial intelligence (#AI), we work at the intersection of technology, governance, policy and social impact — with foundations, public and private sector.

Our strategic advisory helps identify opportunities for positive impact and ways to act on them. We help define your organization’s strategic path towards greater impact, opportunity, and relevance.

We bring in the knowledge and insights of years of experience and a global network of experts, and we’re not afraid to ask tough questions to fully grasp the context of your work.

To give you a better feeling for the type of projects we do, some recent examples:

  • We’ve provided a foundation with research and strategic advice regarding potentials & challenges of a trustmark for IoT.
  • We’ve researched smart cities for the German government, and developed policy recommendations to ensure that smart cities work as well for citizens as they do for the administration.
  • We’ve helped global tech companies shape their IoT policy.
  • We’ve provided analysis and policy recommendations to foundations and think tanks around smart city policy and governance, as well as AI ecosystem-building.

We help you navigate uncharted waters, identify opportunities for growth or new high-impact areas, reduce risks, and innovative. Think of it as future proofing.
