#89 Building a Policy Consulting Firm in India
The Policy Post
Editor’s Note ✍️
With the expanding avenues of careers in Public Policy, more and more people are stepping into the field and doing some amazing work. We spoke to one such person recently — Arindam Banerjee, Co-Founder and Partner, Policy and Development Advisory Group (PDAG) about his journey of building a policy consulting firm in India! Arindam, along with being the founder of PDAG, is also a Chevening Scholar and studied Public Policy, Strategic Communications & Research at the Blatnavik School of Government, University of Oxford. Watch the video to learn more about the opportunities that lie within the policy consulting space in India!
With that, we bring you Policy Post #89
