We believe every company should have access to the same strategy expertise and support that large firms like Bain, BCG, and McKinsey provide. Our team consists of former consultants from some of these firms, and we remain passionate about bringing data-driven, actionable recommendations to our clients. We specialize in primary and secondary market research-based strategy consulting, and ensure our insights come from a multitude of data sources: industry expert interviews, surveys, traditional third party research, and alternative data sources.
T4 began its life as a company automating the knowledge management and librarian functions of professional services firms and enterprises. We collected the entire world of market research across 1,000 tech sector industries, the largest tech taxonomy in the world, and launched a Beta of that software at TechCrunch Startup Battlefield in 2019. You can see our presentation here. In 2020, we launched a strategy advisory arm of T4, which is now our principle line of business.
While we no longer support the platform, email us if you’d like to check out what the experience on our knowledge management automation software platform was like.
