Meet The CEO

Strategica started in Boston in 2015 initially to undertake studies and analysis for development financial institutions and Universities’ research departments. The first project was initiated with Professor Peter Roger from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of Harvard University, for the setting up of an economic model to optimize urban water use. Thus, a pilot project was realized for the city of Marrakech and presented during COP22 in November 2016. Strategica became an international firm specialized in strategic studies and economic intelligence in Africa, and also the Middle East.

We have cumulated several years of experience in the elaboration of multi-sectorial integrated strategies with a vision for an inclusive and sustainable socio-economic development . Adding to that, a savvy-tech approach and the use of innovative tools to navigate through the digital transition and to get ready for the fourth industrial revolution, preparing leaders through their transformation and the acceleration of their performance.
