Agathon International is a research, analysis and advisory company, focused on private sector issues in frontier economies. Thematically, our services are centred on three core areas:
We value local context. 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 also value clarity of thought, and clear expression in plain English. When thought is expressed clearly, the validity of one’s analysis is made apparent. Clear expression is vital for analysis that strikes at the truth.
“We have come out of the time when obedience, the acceptance of discipline, intelligent courage, and resolution were most important, into that more difficult time when it is a man’s duty to understand his world rather than to simply fight for it.” – Ernest Hemmingway.
Our business is underpinned by our desire to achieve the common good, both for our clients and for the societies in which they operate.
