Tapis Intelligence launched a new concept in locally-sourced global information in May 2018, and is now growing fast in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Tapis is rapidly scaling up its global Consultant Community in the Middle-East, Central & Eastern Europe, Africa and Central Asia to meet significant client demand. Tapis is therefore welcoming new consultants to the network and would love to hear from risk professionals, researchers, intelligence analysts, investigators and operations professionals based across the region.
What is Tapis?
Tapis is a London-based start-up that is filling a gap in the market using a new technological platform to connect companies with expertise on the ground “on tap” at highly competitive prices. As risk, intelligence and consulting professionals, Tapis’s founders were frustrated by the challenges their organisations faced in rapidly accessing ground-truthed intelligence from local sources when remotely gathered or desktop information was not granular enough. They created the Tapis platform to quickly gather requirements, estimate cost and link the client to the in-country source to provide the best local intelligence, quickly and affordably from local consultants. Tapis first consultant network has been built by its founders over decades of operating in the intelligence field.
How does Tapis work?
Tapis Intelligence is powered by a network of experienced local consultants - our Consultant Community. By joining the community, researchers, risk and intelligence professionals working around the globe gain access to fantastic freelance consulting opportunities.
Whether you're a young professional or academic building your portfolio, a highly seasoned consultant looking to increase revenue, or a local consultancy wanting to increase your international exposure, joining the Tapis Community can help you.
