Hypothesis Recognized Among Top U.S. Research Firms for 2017


Double digit revenue growth propels Hypothesis to first appearance on prestigious AMA Gold list of largest U.S. market research firms

June 13, 2017

Los Angeles, CA – Thanks largely to an increase in global brand tracking programs, as well as continued growth in the innovation/ideation, data visualization, and custom research practices, Hypothesis was acknowledged as one of the largest market research firms based on U.S. revenue, according to the AMA Gold Top 50 Report, as published in the June 2017 edition of Marketing News.

Marketing News notes, “There were only three companies that achieved 50% or more year-over-year growth in 2016 including Hypothesis, a creative and consumer insights agency, specializing in innovation/ideation labs and data visualization. Large global brand trackers contributed to its revenue growth.”

“I believe our strong consumer-centric approach, along with a design-thinking workflow and award-winning data visualization has contributed strongly to our growth, but there’s no doubt that our amazing team of consultants, marketing scientists, and designers are what really differentiates us. We are fortunate to attract the best and brightest, and that’s what ultimately leads to great work,” said Jeff Seltzer, Managing Partner.

Maria Stark, Founder and CEO, commented, “I’m extremely proud of the company and what we’ve been able to achieve together over the years. It’s an honor to partner with the best companies in the world and to do so in a way that’s in keeping with the culture and values established when the company started in 2000. I look forward to continuing the journey.”

Hypothesis looks forward to continued growth in Los Angeles, as well as expansion of the Seattle office with the overall goal of “doing the best work for the best companies in the world.”
