machineVantage

machineVantage is unique – and so are our people. You’ll benefit from working closely with a team that has many years of experience providing innovative solutions for the world’s largest brands.

 

Meet the team

 

machineVantage was founded in 2016, inspired by a conversation between our CEO and a global consumer goods company. This multinational corporation was proud of their creative ideas – but kept finding themselves behind the curve.

How was it that this successful company couldn’t stay ahead? What they failed to realize is that 95% of our decision-making is hidden deep in the non-conscious. This company was only able to respond to the 5% of conscious thought and didn’t have the means to mine the depths of consumer behavior.

Knowing essential connections are forged in the non-conscious, we built machineVantage to enable companies to develop compelling products that consumers desire.

Our team includes 14 engineers, two business majors, and two musicians, all brought together by their passion for delivering breakthrough innovative solutions. With seven Ph. Ds and six Masters degrees, we have all the expertise you need.
