Our Approach

We believe the best ideas are found through collaboration and a fresh perspective. Solutions are often found where you least expect and often require buy-in from diverse groups in order to get traction.

Our Story

IA started as a public policy research and development consulting firm. While developing in-depth policy research for clients, we quickly realized that coming up with a good idea is not enough. You have to sell that idea. Whether it’s to legislators or the general public, there is an audience that needs to hear your great idea and you need their buy-in. To meet this need, IA developed a whole suite of products and services around public policy and advocacy from ideation to implementation.
