Navanti Group, LLC is a dynamic small business designed to collect primary data and provide actionable analysis from developing and frontier markets. Our research networks and highly trained subject matter experts combine unparalleled access with cutting edge analytical techniques in order to create insights customized to specific client information needs. Our model relies on:Access – Since 2008, Navanti has built local networks of researchers in over 50 countries throughout Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia. They are native to the environments in which they operate, providing nuanced access across ethnic group, gender and class lines.

  • Depth – Access, without a deep understanding of local dynamics is necessary but not sufficient for acting in emerging markets. Navanti surfaces the “why” data that that might otherwise go unnoticed.

  • Timeliness – Difficult to acquire, in-depth analysis is useless unless it can be delivered in time to support business decisions and team learning. Navanti structures all data efforts to meet client decision cycles.

  • Flexibility – Navanti research networks adapt as local dynamics evolve, providing an opportunistic capacity that enables clients to anticipate and plan for near horizon change.Together, these principles allow Navanti to provide industry best reporting that provides clients with a competitive advantage based on near real-time data.Navanti: Access and Insight in a Complex World
