Company Description:

The DNA of ADL

The ideal ADL teammate gets fired up about applying technology to make the world more sustainable and believes that better leveraging the power of entrepreneurship can change the world. Our core areas of focus include infrastructure-heavy sectors such as energy (utilities, distributed energy), buildings (building materials, advanced construction, prefab/offsite), and transportation (EVs, public transit).

ADL is not a traditional consulting firm; we are a team of entrepreneurs that constantly seek opportunities to build stronger bridges between legacy-sector clients and startup stakeholders to help critical sectors modernize. Folks with a passion for creating new business models and accelerating the commercialization of novel concepts in legacy industries perform particularly well at ADL, especially those with practical experience in our core industries and/or significant start-up exposure.

While we love working with folks who take a structured approach to problem-solving - as you’d expect among those with traditional consulting experience - ADL’s teammates tend to feel constrained by a traditional consulting environment. We have a bias toward action! We don’t just want to create a plan for new market entry (though we do that exceptionally well); we want to actually help launch NewCos and new lines of business. We don’t just want to run an open innovation challenge; we want to creatively structure the agreements that are likely to break down the traditional barriers between legacy companies and scrappy innovators.

We highly value diversity, equity, and inclusion as vital parts of our company DNA. Our vision is to continue building an organization that provides the opportunity to utilize all relevant perspectives and experiences.
