Agathon offers consultancy on a wide range of investment, policy and company-community themes. We provide research, analysis and professional facilitation in East Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and our services are centred on three core areas:
Risk Opportunity Responsibility
Agathon’s staff and network of consultants live and work in the regions on which they advise. We get to know the challenges and rewards of these environments, and we learn how to operate in them responsibly and effectively.
We offer many research services. Examples of our work include risk appreciation and market entry advice for commercial investors, policy analysis for think tanks and donor bodies, social research, and consultancy services on Corporate Social Responsibility. We combine insights from experts in government, industry and civil society with meticulous open source research to tame the complexity of some of the world’s most dynamic economies.
One of our core service areas is extractive industry consultancy. We have deep expertise in the oil, gas and mining sectors worldwide, and provide social studies, analysis and advice for extractive companies. We also regularly engage with donors and policy-makers on industry governance issues.
Agathon facilitates business as well as studying it. We organise and host events such as market exploration trips, and we provide services such as recruitment consultancy, using our extensive networks and on-the-ground knowledge to ensure the best results for our clients.
Our business is underpinned by our desire to achieve the common good, both for our clients and for the societies in which they operate.
