SEVENTYTHREE IS A FIRM OF ANALYSTS, BUSINESS DEVELOPERS AND DEVELOPMENT EDUCATORS. WE CREATE ECONOMIES AND BUSINESS MODELS THAT ARE PRODUCTIVE, FAIR AND SUSTAINABLE. WE SHAPE THE PARADIGMS, THE INSTITUTIONS AND THE LEADERSHIP THAT MAKE THESE THINGS POSSIBLE.
Seventythree works in the energy, marine, land use and industrial sectors. We deliver a unique blend of advisory and training services to business clients, governments, community-based organisations and philanthropists. We work at the macro policy, factory and farm level. Seventy Three Pte.Ltd. is based in Singapore, with the capacity to execute projects globally.
Our goal is to reveal and demonstrate the different ways in which economics needs to change if it is to sustain human flourishing. This goal responds to ever-greater inequality, resource scarcity and environmental decline. Faced with these challenges, economic dogma is dangerously static.
Our approach is rooted in an understanding of the ecological limits to economic activity, not as a fixed barrier, but as a complex, dynamic system which economics must operate within, and continually adapt to, for society to remain productive and resilient.Read our commitments

You may be looking for a way to reignite your passion for development and justice, and apply your talents to work that gets results. If you recognise this description, then please send us your CV.
You will not find reductionism or easy answers at Seventythree, but you will find debate. We enjoy sharing ideas, facts and stories that illuminate the pathway to possible solutions.
We try to WORK OUT LOUD.
