Our Story / Mission Statement:

It’s time to rethink the think tank.

For nearly 200 years, policy institutes have tried to bring a more scientific understanding to important causes. However, restrictive ideologies, layers of bureaucracy, and the need to pursue funding sometimes negatively affected the credibility and depth of that research. In addition, the most important causes have changed significantly under the influence of technology.

For instance, new transportation technologies present opportunities to fundamentally transform mobility, facilitating access to jobs and securing supply chains that are especially critical in times of crisis. The digitization, augmentation, and automation of all sectors in the economy likewise present opportunities for efficiency and consumer benefit.

The spirit of Silicon Valley is largely premised on intellectual problem-solving, the creation or unlocking of novel value, and a high tolerance for risk in the pursuit of great change and reward. In all areas of innovation, however, there are unacceptable risks that need to be mitigated. Digital activities and transformations could be further enhanced, or safeguarded, through sustainable, secure, and equitable practices.

Policy2050 is dedicated to this future of tech policy and business strategy. It’s a new type of research firm premised on the idea that businesses are taking on an increasingly global role and majorly impacting people’s lives, not unlike governments. As a direct consequence, consumer rights and civil rights are becoming blurred. Governments have always had social responsibility. Now business leaders do as well. 

Policy2050 will highlight the ethical implications and societal opportunities associated with modern innovation, circulate those findings among business leaders, and strive to keep the most socially-relevant insights outside of any paywall. As the 2050 date suggests, our primary product is forward-thinking analysis, inclusive of market research, management consulting, and policy guidance.

This endeavor will focus on sectors that are presently undergoing major, technological disruption. We will also explore fundamental aspects of society, where increased innovation could potentially improve outcomes, such as healthcare and education.

Our Goals:

  • To become a trusted resource for industry leaders, policymakers, and journalists, to continually earn that trust by delivering the finest analysis, and to anticipate, then solve for, the problems of tomorrow.
  • To turn highly complex information into clearly distilled and actionable insights.
  • To be impact-first in all of these efforts, aligning the actionable insights with the relevant action-takers.
