BCG Partners with World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum engages leaders from all facets of society—business, politics, academia, and beyond—to shape global, regional, and industry agendas and drive positive change. As a strategic partner of the World Economic Forum, BCG joins a select group of 100 global companies closely aligned with the forum's commitment to improving the state of the world.

Membership in the World Economic Forum is limited to 1,000 of the most influential companies worldwide, representing all sectors and regions.

Like our fellow members, BCG attends the renowned annual meeting of the Forum in Davos as well as its Meeting of the New Champions in China—and its many regional meetings.

As a strategic partner, we do even more. The World Economic Forum taps BCG's people and insights for its collaborative projects, publications, and global communities. The goal of this work is to improve policy making, inform business decisions, share best practices, and engage stakeholders.

Strategic Partner

BCG helps set the agenda for the World Economic Forum's Davos and other meetings, which convene thought leaders to discuss society's problems and explore solutions.

We also collaborate with the World Economic Forum to drive projects targeting critical issues facing business and the world. We capture the insights we help discover in reports published by the World Economic Forum.


We are currently collaborating on six projects with the World Economic Forum, exploring a broad spectrum of topics including self-driving vehicles, construction, and internet access.

Shaping the Future of Construction

Compared with many other industries, engineering and construction (E&C) has remained wary of innovation and has undergone no major disruptive changes. But change is inevitable, and releasing the industry’s enormous potential will generate equally enormous benefits worldwide.

Cyber incidents have become the new normal but we only stand at the beginning of a more fundamental shift: digitalization is ongoing to drive relevance of cyber security exponentially. Board members are increasingly aware that cyber risk management is required and their responsibility – but few are well prepared for this, and fewer yet understand it as a source of competitive advantage.

Since 2007, BCG has been providing consultants to work as "secondees" with the World Economic Forum. Secondees play key roles in researching topics and helping to manage projects—from initial research and analysis, to multistakeholder input and feedback sessions, to completion and publication of any related reports. 

They are considered staff of the World Economic Forum and help prepare their team for presentations to high-profile groups of global and regional leaders at official meetings, including at Davos.

In 2017-2018, six BCG secondees are working with the World Economic Forum on six different projects.

WEF Global Communities

BCG engages in a number of communities organized by the World Economic Forum to focus on specific regions and areas of interest. The members of these networks commit both their time and talent to making the world a better place. The communities bring together member and partner companies as well as leaders from civil society, enabling personal interactions and collaboration. 

BCG staff and alumni have been invited to join some of the World Economic Forum's most innovative communities making the most significant contributions. Here, we highlight their involvement by the numbers.

Young Global Leaders

Twenty current and former BCGers have been selected to join this community of exceptional people under 40 years old who share a commitment to shaping the world's future.

Global Future Councils

BCG has participated on 10 invitation-only councils focusing on critical topics since the councils were launched in 2008. Our current members on the Global Future Councils are studying emerging multinationals, gender parity, education, new growth models, geo-economies, and telecommunication.
