Who is Circle?

Seen from our customers

Circle is a disruptive player in the strategy market via :

An approach that breaks with traditional consulting firms

As economic and social cycles become shorter and shorter, the theoretical approach based on the past experience of classical firms is becoming less and less relevant.

A vision with 3 strong convictions :


Circle places the field at the heart of its methodology. More than ever, pragmatism is at the center of our profession by forming a virtuous circle between knowledge and action. In the new world of consulting, a sense of the terrain is essential. Efficiency is what turns the excellence of expertise into a concrete result. We call this the exiciency.


Because we are convinced that in order for a vision to be realized, it must be based on a strong legitimacy, we work on it or exploit it systematically from the start of each mission. Legitimacy serves as the foundation for strategic plans and transformation plans.


Circle’s originality in the consulting world comes in part from its origins. Circle was born from venture capital and recruits profiles with a double track record: strategy consulting and real field experience. Our clients, the major CAC 40 groups, appreciate the focus on impact and the pragmatic spirit of the Circlers.

Circle is the opportunity to accelerate his career in :

A strategy consulting firm with a solid foundation.

A recognition of the firm within the major groups of the CAC 40 with high added value projects sponsored by the COMEX.

A pragmatic approach recognized by our clients that ensures that the strategy can be deployed and applied in the field.
