We are a small, São Paulo based research agency born in January 2012. Over the past few years we have earned a reputation for uncovering valuable insights combined with clear, actionable findings. We have an intimate knowledge of the Brazilian market combined with a thoroughly global outlook. This allows us not only to communicate fluently with global marketing teams but also to identify the nuances of Brazilian culture that only a comparative perspective allows.
