Our Story

BCG Platinion launched in Germany in 2000 to add deep technical expertise to The Boston Consulting Group's (BCG) existing capabilities. Our presence spans across the globe, with offices in Asia, Europe, and North America. We partner with BCG and identify clients' most critical challenges to create customized technical solutions and accelerate value delivery. We aim to future-proof organizations and generate sustainable solutions, enabling our clients to be resilient regardless of present complexities. Today, BCG Platinion is a key part of BCG’s digital capabilities. Our style is entrepreneurial - nimble and innovative, with multifaceted, cross-functional teams. The advantage is technical expertise and executional excellence.

Headquartered in New York, our North American team started in 2014 and, in 2017, acquired MAYA Design, a Pittsburgh-based digital design and innovation lab. MAYA was founded in 1989 by three Carnegie Mellon University professors on the principal of exploring what’s possible, while designing solutions for real people.  Adopting Raymond Loewy’s philosophy, “Most Advanced, Yet Acceptable”, MAYA helps organizations grow and succeed by solving complex business problems at the intersection of human experience and technology.  Now MAYA brings its excellent reputation and nearly 30 years of digital transformation and human-centered design experience to BCG.

Our family of Digital BCG companies includes BCG Platinion, BCG Platinion MAYA Design, Digital Ventures, and GAMMA. Combined with the leading strategy consulting expertise from BCG, we are building companies for the future with diverse multidisciplinary teams.  We work seamlessly to combine our capabilities with those of our clients to deliver extraordinary results.

Today, BCG Platinion in North America delivers end-to-end results in Digital & Technology, Cybersecurity, and Risk Management & Financial Engineering.

Our Space

We believe the physical environment plays a critical role in fostering innovation, and our space is designed to be an active part of the design process.

A few facts about our space:


The Kiva is our main ideation room.

The circular space of the Kiva® disrupts typical group dynamics by removing the head of the table and the front of the room. Wraparound whiteboards help us stay physically immersed in the information and ideas we’ve generated.


We sit in neighborhoods.

Our desks aren’t arranged by team or project. We sit in open, interdisciplinary neighborhoods where serendipitous interactions create a richer work environment and better outcomes for clients.

Our space supports our culture.

Our space helps us accomplish the things we value most: collaboration, ideation, and making stuff. We have prototyping labs for each discipline and dozens of formal and ad hoc collaborative spaces.

We leverage our strong global network, with offices in Asia, Europe, and North America.
