Agathon is an agile firm, with a small core staff. They operate by building teams of experts on a project-by-project basis, drawing from their extensive roster of local and international consultants. They are able to look worldwide, leveraging their network to provide expertise in a great many fields. They are also able to look deep into their chosen geographies, seeking out on-the-ground insights through local knowledge.
Agathon aspires not only to provide world class products, but also to innovate, develop, and question the status quo. They want to be leaders as well as doers. Sound appreciation of risk, tenacious grasp of opportunity and pro-developmental policy from governments and companies are constantly-evolving disciplines. They aim to keep ahead of the game.
Seeking the ‘common good’, both for international organisations and for developing-world stakeholders, underpins Agathon’s operations. Indeed, the company’s name is derived from the ancient Greek κοινὸν ἀγαθόν, used by Plato to discuss this concept in his works. Achieving the common good can often be difficult, but they are committed to the journey towards it nonetheless.
