Simultaneous interpreters across silos, disciplines and cultures, we craft innovative solutions to common workplace problems. We gravitate to investor and business challenges/opportunities that intersect with broad societal trends and/or government policy.
We also apply our experience addressing these challenges in the private sector to deliver collaborative, practical and implementable solutions that help chip away at cross-sector problems where we have something to add.
Here is some of our work. See more projects: Thought Leadership
After diving deep into horizontal drilling and fracing economics for a private-equity owned energy technology client at the start of the shale revolution, we translated the biochemistry, geology and petroleum engineering jargon that we had to unpeel into a simpler lexicon to help business, finance and policy leaders frame emerging but poorly understood investment opportunities and risk driven by water-energy linkages across the full spectrum of fossil-based and alternative sources of electric power and transportation fuel.
