Synthesis Partners, LLC



Synthesis Partners collects, integrates, and analyzes hard–to–find open–source information in an environment of information overload to provide decision–makers with previously unavailable knowledge and insights. The company delivers actionable technology and business intelligence content and processes covering a wide range of technical fields and markets.

The company's offerings can be broadly grouped into two areas: Technology Intelligence, which identifies and assesses relevant technologies and considers the attributes of technologies and their applications in specific settings, and Market Intelligence, which includes characterizations of factors such as economic, political and other trends, decision–makers and their criteria, competitors, and partners, among others. Many of our projects incorporate elements of both areas.
