About Us

We all find ourselves in the midst of a blur of technological and cultural changes that have infiltrated every aspect of life — and every industry. Taking stock of these changes, deciding what matters, and finding a way forward is why we’re here. Although our work spans many sectors and stakeholders, health and well-being have always been a sweet spot for us.


Looking forward

Helpfully plays at the fuzzy front end of projects where things aren’t always well defined yet. We help clients distill and crystallize current realities. We roll up our sleeves and do the fieldwork necessary to discover the right problem to solve.

Specifically, we’re a hive-minded constellation — a concentration of domain experts who give you cognitive diversity and emergent thinking. We apply our insights to invent the right new thing. We’re here to help you get — and stay — ahead.

Helpfully is, at its heart, a consulting firm. Our purpose is to be your guide to the new — and the better.

Network Connectivity

Helpfully is a deeply connected company with a network of talented individuals with diverse skills, perspectives, and expertise. A community of like-minded achievers who all play well with others.  

We build teams from our networks in academia, policy, startup, and enterprise areas. The world is faced today with such diverse and complex problems to solve, we need access to all the perspectives we can collect, in order to answer client questions.

We operate Helpfully as if our organizational walls are a semi-permeable membrane. We reject a rigid structure and forced distinctions between ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ the company. We seamless add value with every interaction.

Here’s how we invest in our network

We at Helpfully are only here today because of what others have given to us and we are here to pass it on.
