Reimagining Social Change through Inclusive Markets
The largest market in the world, Asia is also the biggest driver of global growth today. While emerging markets in the region are making rapid progress on development goals, complex social challenges remain. Our inclusive markets approach catalyzes social change and unlocks sustainable business opportunities for a more inclusive, equitable, and prosperous Asia. With cutting-edge expertise in strategy and evaluation and in developing innovative business models that shape inclusive markets, we help corporations, donors, investors, and governments drive sustainable and meaningful social impact across diverse sectors in Asia.
As we think, advise, and do, our world-class thought leadership, consulting, and programs have impacted the lives of those who face the greatest barriers to economic security, have influenced significant investments and funding for social impact efforts in Asia, and helped corporations gain a competitive advantage. As advisors and facilitators who blend rigorous data analysis with empathy, we are comfortable working in complex environments with clients, partners, and community members.

As a mission-driven consulting firm, we believe that an understanding of systems should be followed by interventions that effect real change on the ground. Research becomes more meaningful when it translates into praxis. Above and beyond our work with clients, we have developed initiatives and programs with our partners to put the insights drawn from our projects into action. FSG has run multi-year programs to help improve early childhood learning outcomes in affordable private schools across India, and to grow livelihood opportunities for women in India in non-traditional, high-growth sectors.
