We Do

Our Manifesto

The world has entered an era of converging crises, and we need a different way of solving problems. Dalberg Catalyst exists to tackle at the root some of the most pressing societal and planetary challenges of our time.

We take on these challenges with agility and tenacity, doing what it takes to drive transformational change.

We can’t do this alone; we act alongside vision-aligned partners to collectively push for that change.


With humility, we build momentum for bold ideas – through analysis, strategy, co-creation, coalition-building, and advocacy. What we’ve set out to do is hard.  But we believe it’s what’s required to bring about the seismic shifts the world needs. 

Our Approach

Together, we build momentum for bold ideas.

Over the past four years, we have co-created more than 20 initiatives across 25+ countries - including several that are global in impact.

Prior to deciding whether to take on a particular problem, we assess its  significance, persistence, and whether there is sufficient dynamism for us to try and tackle the root.

All our initiatives incorporate the following key ingredients:

A seasoned leader-of-leaders with experience orchestrating collective efforts


A holistic problem-solving approach that considers the entirety of the system.


Coalitions of mutually accountable changemakers working from a common playbook.


A foundation of trusted evidence, including perspectives from those closest to the issues


Our Progress

With 4 years under Catalyst’s belt, we are delighted to share a lookback report describing what we’ve been up to, as well as our approach and aspirations.


We hope it offers a glimpse into what we’ve been able to tangibly achieve with our fantastic partners over the last few years.

We share this report in the hope of inviting other initiatives, entrepreneurs, and organisations to reach out, so our combined efforts can be more than the sum of their parts.
