Primary Research Services

Independent, co-branded research reports to be published by The Hive Research Services and Solution Partner. The research is structured around an initial hypothesis agreed with Solution Partner and consists of a combination of quantitative survey results and qualitative on-the-record interviews with commentary provided by The Hive editorial team and Solution Partner.

How it works:

The Hive has a wealth of contact data for each of our industry verticals. Our database is proprietary, we don’t give / sell access, and we only use it for marketing our events and distributing our content and conducting in-depth research with market participants.

  • The Hive can survey our members on a topic of interest to the partner
  • Data selection for researches can be tailored to the partner’s specific brief. Insight gathered can be quantitative (based on a survey completed by >50 market participants), qualitative (1-1 interviews and case studies to add depth to the aggregated survey data), or a mix of the two.
  • The Hive can distribute findings / research reports to our database / at events / through affiliates
  • Partner can distribute internally and through external channels
