Rebecca Nguyen - February 27, 2015

Digital connectivity is disrupting businesses across industries and geographies, and turning the established order upside down. As consumers, we now enjoy on-demand access to anything from taxis to cleaners and everything in between.

At AlphaSights, we’re bringing the on-demand revolution to professional knowledge.

What we do

Starting back in 2008, we have pioneered a faster, better way for professionals to access highly specific business knowledge. We do so by connecting our clients – decision-makers at the world’s top private equity firms, hedge funds, strategy consultancies and corporations – with industry practitioners who possess the exact frontline knowledge and expertise needed. Through our service, we help our clients access precisely the knowledge they need quickly and effectively, enabling confident decision-making and eliminating the need for slow market research or costly consultancy engagements.

Seamless global teamwork across our offices in New York, London, Dubai and Hong Kong allows us to rapidly deliver on the most challenging client demands effectively, confidentially and across all industry sectors and geographies.
