The consumer economy has changed more in the last ten years than it has in the previous century.

But you have less time than ever before to figure it out.

Our Focus

Given this reality, two questions shape everything we do to save you time and get to the point.


What’s happening and why does it matter to you?

We dive into major themes across the new consumer economy that impact your business so you can be proactive, not reactive.  


What does it mean for you and what should you do about it?

We put these major themes in context so you understand the implications. Then we put forth tactical solutions so you can take action and drive long-lasting growth.

Our Approach

We take an interdisciplinary approach, combining insights from fashion, apparel, beauty, CPG and hospitality—verticals that are increasingly part of the same conversation. We focus on the evolution of online and offline retail and work with companies of all sizes.
