As a small business, Panagora offers the best of all worlds—the efficacy, discipline and results orientation of the private sector, and proven ability to manage complex and fast-moving programs, with the special enthusiasm, agility, and creativity of a small business. True to our name, Panagora is an “inclusive space where ideas bubble and the best thrive and spread.”


Panagora Group believes that focusing on novel and integrated approaches to health and development will yield the best long-term results. To that end, we place special focus on integrating learning and adaptation into how social and economic development interventions are designed – to respond to changing circumstances, and learn from experience.

Panagora continues to demonstrate pride and thoroughness in their final products and services. They are very consistent in always meeting goals and never hesitate to ask questions if there are concerns. Their team is always looking to go above and beyond. The firm understands and appreciates how continuous learning enhances their overall work product.

Stephanie Fugate, Supervisory CO PPR comment for EVAL ME I IDIQ

As a subcontractor under TASC2 and 3, I worked closely with Betsy Bassan for 10 years. She consistently demonstrated a unique blend of fairness, sound technical judgement, management savvy, and openness. She is unusually effective in creating a consortium team and tapping into the strengths of its members. She also has an unrelenting focus on implementation including managing the transition from proposals to implementation with great skill.

Fred Rosensweig, Training Resources Group

The contractor, through its management approach, was able to adapt to emerging needs from the Mission and align its approaches to ensure that there were no issues with the deliverables of the tasks delivered during the time period.  This ability amounted to noticeable benefits for the USG as the Mission was able to stay on top of its priorities despite the dynamic change in the global context and the work environment.

Fitria Wahid, COR, Indonesia MEL-P

Panagora is very responsive, able to rapidly assemble a top-notch team, field them quickly and compliantly, flexibly modify as required, manage the process, and ensure a timely, high-quality, and cost-effective deliverable.

Neal Donohue, Managing Director, Chemonics

The contractor’s ability to submit deliverables and bills on time cannot be ignored… the level of communication was high and this created a suitable environment for production of quality deliverables.


Panagora is a very flexible and highly responsive contractor, trusted by USAID and Implementing Partners alike, and an example of the kind of partner that USAID seeks in a support services contractor.

Stakeholders in the Philippines’ Innovation Ecosystem Share Experiences and Ways Forward after USAID STRIDE

Strong partnerships between stakeholders in science and technology innovation ecosystems stimulate knowledge creation and transfer, enabling new products and business models to catalyze economic transformation and development. Through activities like STRIDE, USAID plays a vital role in strengthening collaboration among stakeholders in the Philippines’ innovation ecosystem, thus expanding inclusive, market-driven growth in the country. USAID/Philippines commissioned its CLAimDev activity to conduct an independent evaluation of STRIDE’s final three years, which were an extension beyond that activity’s original five-year contract. CLAimDev hosted an online learning event on March 16, 2022, to disseminate its findings, and give 300 participants an opportunity to share their insights on the challenges STRIDE encountered and ways to sustain its gains. CLAimDev’s full evaluation report is now accessible in USAID’s Development Experience Clearinghouse, and is also available in a web version here.
