Global technology public policy firm Access Partnership announced its integration with Singapore-based strategy and economics consultancy AlphaBeta.
The combination of both companies creates a unified service offering to develop and implement tech-lead solutions that improve society.
Both companies have already collaborated on high-impact work for non-profits, think tanks and corporates, and the combined entity. This now makes Access Partnership among the biggest tech advisory practices in the region with some 45 heads in Singapore alone.
AlphaBeta will continue to trade and operate its brand as Access Partnership company providing high-impact policy and advisory services that accelerate time-to-market for new technologies, and guide governments towards the best policy solutions for citizens.
Greg Francis, CEO of Access Partnership, explained that the value of a technology solution is not apparent to all stakeholders.
He added that their firm will provide that end-to-end service with the addition of the “truly passionate economists” of AlphaBeta.
AlphaBeta is a strategic economics consultancy that works with governments, businesses, investors, and other institutions to tackle the largest challenges that the world faces. It believes that “rigorous economics combined with strong strategic advice can help provide new, innovative, and practical solutions to addressing issues ranging from automation of jobs, biodiversity loss to poverty alleviation.”
Dr. Fraser Thompson, co-founder, and Director of AlphaBeta, said both companies share the same mission in helping businesses and government create positive societal change.
Being a part of Access Partnership, Thompson added, offers them an opportunity to drive new services to their current and future clients.
Access Partnership, the world’s leading public policy firm dedicated to opening markets for technology, shapes national, regional and international policies to ensure a “fair, long-lasting environment for technology that drives growth.”
Their teams across the globe uniquely mix policy and technical expertise to drive outcomes for clients operating at the intersection of technology, data and connectivity.
