ABOUT THE PROMOTERS OF BFC19

VERDE
VERDE is a full-service strategic research and insight practice built on the belief that globally our economies and societies are underpinned by and reliant on science to make informed decisions. However, many markets have not benefited to the same degree as the rest of the developed world. The link between evidence, data, factual analysis and independent advice from a group of multi-disciplinary experts is critical and valued. In Mauritius there is an abundance of potential which can be delivered. Our bespoke solutions which include surveys, focus groups, ethnography studies, data consulting and creative research specifically address those needs.
Creative and inquisitive, we are passionate about empowering our clients to make the decisions that matter. We work with organisations to define and overcome strategic challenges –helping them to get to grips with the market in which their brands operate. We use the right approach and methodology to deliver robust insights, strategic counsel and targeted recommendations that generate change and positive outcomes.
