Our History

Since our foundation in 2008, we have worked with government officials as well as local and international organizations to tackle some of Bangladesh’s most difficult challenges – the interlinking issues of growth generation, poverty alleviation, stabilization, institutional strengthening and capacity building.

In recent years, we have developed service lines focused on infrastructure, private sector, public administration, education and climate change. Our reputation for fast and effective response was further enhanced after we contributed to Bangladesh’s Master Plan as part of the countermeasure for Bangladesh’s energy supply crisis and climate change. Our private sector development services expanded significantly from 2014, supporting programs launched to tackle systemic barriers to private sector development in Bangladesh.

Our experiences and results have led us to become a trusted leader in delivering a comprehensive range of projects. Our focus on implementing pragmatic solutions has remained a constant throughout our history and we pride ourselves on bringing the best minds together to address some of the most challenging issues.
