Like Galileo himself, we have a fearless commitment to exposing what others cannot see; to illuminating truth, however controversial, however obscured from plain sight. We are never satisfied with the easy, the traditional, the accepted. We constantly seek to reinvent market research and discover new value for our clients, and to do so, our practice steps outside the world of market research, drawing from leading-edge theory and practice from therapeutic psychology and behavioral economics.
“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”
– Galileo Galilei

– Mark Truss, Global Director of Brand Intelligence, J. Walter Thompson
“Galileo Research is the only vendor that has ever delivered consistently great work for me. Time after time, their reports reflect not just what respondents have said, but rather what they really mean. One project with Galileo Research will raise the bar for your other vendors”
– Laura Sullivan, Senior Market Planning Manager and Patient Insights Lead, Genentech

“The Galileo team is a great asset to Lexus. They go out of their way to ensure that clients’ expectations are being exceeded, and that their findings are communicated in clear, thoughtful, and actionable ways. I would definitely recommend Galileo to anyone wishing to elevate their understanding of their customers, their business, and themselves.”
– Mark F. Lucas, Strategic Planning & Research, Lexus, Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc
“Do not work with Galileo if you have an inflated sense of self. You will be very disappointed because they are likely to leverage observations you never noticed and generate ideas that surpass your own. They’re lovely people to work with, and will probably make your old insights look like mere observation.”
– Keith Newton, Chief Planning Officer, Y&R
