We are AlphaSights
We’re in this business to execute a big, future-proof mission: to connect the world’s top professionals with the world’s best knowledge.
What we do
We founded AlphaSights in 2008 to tackle one of society’s most intractable problems: useful knowledge is dispersed, hidden and buried in the minds of individuals around the world. By implication, relevant knowledge is rarely available where it is needed most. Our founding insight was that digital connectivity would provide the tools to tackle this problem directly.
We envision a world where every decision maker can effortlessly tap the world’s collective knowledge, reducing ignorance and the waste of resources it entails. A world where knowledge available somewhere informs critical decisions everywhere.
We are a global team of ambitious, purpose-driven professionals
Our people bring their commercial instincts and outstanding business acumen to every project to truly understand our clients’ unique questions, before identifying the precise experts who can offer valuable insights.
We regularly rank as one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.
Whether we connect a leading investor to specific expertise in a faraway market, help a corporation understand a new continent, or work with a social entrepreneur through our social impact business unit, we believe access to knowledge drives human progress.
Through hard work, drive, emotional intelligence and a commitment to delivering results, you’ll be on the path to becoming Manager in two years and Vice President in five after joining as an Associate.
The thing that I love the most is that balance between the autonomy that you get and also the sense of structure and support that we have as a company.
Our office culture
At AlphaSights we’re proud of our healthy streak of competitiveness and make a point of celebrating our successes. Whether it’s our annual office retreats, a last minute team outing or a well-earned drink after work, celebrations here are never too far away.
Our London office is an open, friendly place to work, with perks ranging from free breakfast and snacks in the office to our weekly morning yoga classes and corporate gym discounts for all employees. You can also look forward to regular drinks on a Friday, a chance to get to know your colleagues outside of the office.
We're committed to accelerating progress for our clients and our people alike. But it's not all hard work: we hold sports tournaments, trips abroad and other events throughout the year, letting us relax and enjoy our successes as a team.
