Mission/Statement of Purpose:

We are a small, woman-owned, Erie-based analytics firm, established in October 2008. We are staffed entirely by graduates of the Mercyhurst College Institute for Intelligence Studies (MCIIS), who are trained and experienced in the rigorous application of proven analytic techniques.

Our goal is to provide professional research, analysis, and writing products to clients of all types, whether they are in public, private, or not-for-profit sectors, at the greatest value to the client.

We work closely with all of our clients to build a relationship of trust in order that we are accurately identifying their true needs and supplying them with the finished intelligence and writing products that can help them grow and succeed.

Although we are based in Erie, Pennsylvania, we are not bound by geographic constraints and have clients in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and as far afield as Zurich, Switzerland, and Sydney, Australia. We are also not limited in capacity by our small size, as we can expand our pool of expertise as needed with top-notch graduate students from MCIIS and further reduce our costs. We also have an extensive network of partners with expertise in the automotive, finance, law enforcement, national security, pharmaceutical, technology, and other fields.
