About Us

We’re a leader in our field with unique expertise and experience at the forefront of behavioral science. We use this to innovate, drive social change and improve millions of lives. We create fresh solutions to tough issues based on behavioral insights that can be scaled up for the greatest impact. ideas42 also educates leaders and help institutions improve existing programs and policies. 

Our work spans more than 25 countries and encompasses economic mobility, health, education, consumer finance, criminal justice, energy efficiency and international development. As a global, nonprofit organization, our partners include governments, foundations, companies and many other institutions. 

At its core, behavioral science helps us understand human behavior and why people make the decisions they do. It teaches us that context matters, that asking the right questions is critical and that simple solutions are often available, but frequently overlooked or dismissed. We work to identify the subtle but important contextual details that can have a disproportionate impact on outcomes.
