We work across a range of sectors and businesses, from startup financing to data analytics, to financial inclusion and the use of space for development, to ensure our clients lead the field in the use of technology to deliver equitable and sustainable development.

Strategy & Digital Transformation Overview

Caribou Digital’s Strategy & Digital Transformation Practice provides project-based consultancy services to government agencies, multilateral institutions, foundations, and companies across geographies and sectors. Projects might involve desk-based research to landscape an industry in a particular geography, conducting key informant interviews, synthesizing reports and data on a topic and identifying knowledge frontiers, data analysis/modeling, facilitating workshops, developing strategic recommendations, or writing white papers.

We are growing our consultant and advisor bench.

We are looking for exceptional applicants living anywhere in the world to join our bench of consultants and advisors. Qualified consultants and advisors would then be contacted to work on assignments as opportunities arise. While we currently do not offer full employment, we do work on the most interesting and pressing digital transformation opportunities and challenges we face as a society and with the best clients in the industry.

We seek geographical diversity and especially seek advisors connected with important actors and stakeholders at regional and national levels in their communities.
