Our mission

Our mission is to sieve from the morass of facts, all necessary insights that guide evidence-based business decisions, and policy rethinking. Leveraging the inherent skills of our young professionals and the enthusiasm in data analytics, we develop new, relevant measures and indices to generate new insights, advance the knowledge of society and guide our solutions to business problems. Our Economic Policy uncertainty index and the Governance Pessimism index are examples.  Our approach is rooted in innovation, rigor, and results.


We value openness and scientific procedures in our work and aim to produce critical and objective commentaries on public dialogues.

Our vision

Our vision is to demonstrate the abilities of young professionals to assume leadership in academia, business, and governance through our works. We want to work with stakeholders to build lasting partnerships on programs and projects consistent with our philosophy. We see ourselves as partners and collaborators, not competitors. We are committed to high methodological standards, we want to enhance the way research is done: dispel and challenge any moribund status-quo to become one of the most sought-after groups.

Why us?

Young and diverse

We are a team of young and experienced professionals in diverse fields ranging from finance, economics, data analytics, innovation management, strategy advisory, energy management, environment, sciences, and academia.


On each project, we apply robust quantitative and qualitative methods and deploy the diverse expertise of our highly trained and experienced partners and consultants to ensure that our insights are founded on sound reasoning and robust methodologies.

Africa by Africans

Working with us, you would be asking young African professionals to give you insights into the future of Africa. Who best to tell you? We’re on ground and understand the seemingly chaotic markets.

International experience

We leverage the multicultural experiences of our partners and consultants, gathered through years of professional experiences in multilateral institutions, to deliver nuanced and balanced perspectives.


In client engagement and relationships, we remain guided by all reasonable business ethics. We are committed to the specificity of each project and client expectation; we keep our word and give guarantees where needed.

Volunteer force

We rely on a network of members who volunteer to share knowledge and bring their expertise to support our projects and programs. These volunteer members come from diverse fields, working with multinational institutions across the world, and yet see the need to share transferable skills.
