Smart Thinking

The first organisation to bring together policy recommendations of all UK think tanks into one place.


Before Smart Thinking there was no central platform and dedicated audience for the UK think tank sector as a whole to recruit new staff or collaborate together on training, sector issues and networking.


Smart Thinking has built the first online platform to bring together think tanks from across the political spectrum into one place. For sector knowledge and development it is building a think tank network that offers training, networking and industry resources to its members and for policy job hires it has built the first dedicated policy and think tank jobs board.


Our market is organisations and people who want to create and access policies generated by think tanks. While there are thousands of think tanks, Smart Thinking is a unique platform that facilitates access to their content. Our first target customers are the think tanks. We already provide resources for them and will develop this into a membership proposition for the sector. Our second targets are those looking for a career in think tanks. We plan to create a think tank specific jobs board. Our final targets will be corporates. We plan to offer briefings and events where we bring a number of think tanks together. From Emily’s previous experience working in think tank business development, we know this market stretches from FTSE100 companies to SMEs who work closely with the government.
