Black Swan Data’s mission is to enable companies to be more decisive, act at speed and get to market first. We achieve this by scientifically predicting consumers’ future needs, wants and desires through the application of AI to the world’s largest record of actual thought and behaviour – the internet.

Our proprietary tools allow us to surface emerging trends and predict changes in consumers earlier and more accurately than anyone else. We combine this intelligence with deep industry expertise to provide products and services that answer strategic marketing questions and deliver better business outcomes.

Founded in 2011, we employ over 250 ‘Swans’ worldwide in offices from London, New York, Los Angeles, Cape Town and Budapest. We were recently recognised as one of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies by the FT and work with pioneering brands from clients including PepsiCo, Unilever, Mondelez, McDonald’s and Google.
