AlphaBeta was founded in 2015 by economists with considerable experience in both academia and private sector consulting. They saw a need for a new breed of consultants who could marry academic rigour with commercial relevance to help solve the world’s most pressing issues.
Those founding principles shape our values today. We are pragmatic and client-focused, aiming to build enduring relationships with our clients by only accepting work that we are best placed to conduct, and where there is scope for real impact. We bring the best expertise to bear on any given issue and deliver our recommendations in clear, plain English to help a CEO-level audience achieve results.
We are independent and ethical, committed to maintaining client confidentiality, and honest about what we know and what we don’t. We reject work that we think has questionable ethical implications.
And we’re a great place to work. We know that diverse perspectives lead to better business outcomes, and are committed to supporting flexible, sustainable work practices at all levels of the firm. We demand high standards, and have a strong focus on apprenticeship, mentoring and training. We want to be the best environment for exceptional people: a place where talented people learn, grow, and make a difference.
On Nov 29, 2021, AlphaBeta joined Access Partnership, a leading global public policy firm, focused on digital sector, with offices around the world. Both organisations share the same mission in helping businesses and governments create positive societal change. Being a part of the globally recognised Access Partnership platform allows us to deepen our technology expertise, which is proving increasingly critical to our work also in sustainability and economic development, and grow our team across offices in the UK, Europe, the US, Africa, Latin America, and across Asia.
