"I have had the pleasure of working with Valens Global on numerous projects designed to address and reduce the incidence of militant recruitment, targeted harassment, and the spread of hateful ideas and ideologies in the online space. Valens is a thoroughly impressive organization, not only in its outputs but also in its design. Valens incorporates cutting-edge leadership, management, and organizational design principles, some of which are unique to it. It boasts a stable of highly talented experts and analysts, and the organization obviously empowers people all the way down to the most junior levels to handle even the most daunting of challenges. My team and I are invariably thrilled when Valens ends up tackling one of the issues with which we are grappling."

"During my tenure at DHS, I had the opportunity to work with Valens on several major projects. Most critically, the company played an important role in crafting the 2019 Strategic Framework for Countering Terrorism and Targeted Violence - the Department’s first Counterterrorism Strategy. Faced with a seemingly impossible project timeline, Valens was able to quickly organize a process for delivering a quality product in record time, doing so by fusing deep subject matter expertise with the utmost professionalism and responsiveness to feedback on the product. Their team handled a multitude of challenges, including often having to navigate disagreements and competing visions and directions for the document, and did so with patience and humility and remained a pleasure to work with throughout the process. Valens stands out among other contractors for their unique mix of work quality, subject matter expertise, and outstanding character."
