We are building the world's smartest source of market intelligence on the global impact economy to power decisions that matter.


Why we're here

We believe that accelerating the impact economy will power economic growth and solve the world’s most important social and environmental challenges.

In 2018, we looked across the global impact landscape and saw the world’s most important social and economic systems, such as education, healthcare and sustainability, forced to make critical decisions and trade-offs without sufficiently dedicated, trusted or global market intelligence.

The stakes have never been higher, nor the opportunity greater. Governments, academia, firms and investors around the world need relevant, trusted and globally connected intelligence to inform decisions and actions that impact humanity.

We saw a need for a different kind of technology to power decisions that matter, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded HolonIQ.


Holon (philosophy). ὅλον. An evolving and self organizing system. Where each holon is simultaneously a whole and part of something bigger.
