Resonance brings unique perspective to economic growth and trade challenges.

We pair our deep expertise in global development with our strong private sector orientation to advance effective economic growth solutions. We work in partnership with both companies and the public sector to promote economic growth, stimulate private sector development, and invest in robust and productive value chains.

Private Sector Growth and Investment. In emerging markets, Resonance works with companies, governments, and investors to understand and confront the obstacles to private sector investment, growth, and diversification. We act both at an ecosystem level – advancing analysis, partnerships, and solutions to alleviate barriers to private sector investment – as well as with individual companies and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to open new markets and accelerate growth.

Trade and Competitiveness. Resonance advances trade and competitiveness to promote a thriving, interconnected global economy. We work directly with major multinationals, investors, and governments to foster supportive business enabling environments; promote investment, regulatory reform, and market systems development; and advance digital commerce and women’s economic participation.

Workforce Development. Today, the biggest growth constraint in many economies is no longer a lack of capital: it’s a skills gap. Resonance helps clients create workforce development strategies aligned to the needs of workers, companies, and the marketplace. We also look ahead to help companies and communities anticipate and capitalize on tomorrow’s opportunities.
