“The prize goes to the person who sees the future the quickest.” – William Stiritz

At OODA we believe in creating new value through investment, partnership, and nurturing emerging concepts that have the potential for disproportionate impact on business, science, culture, or society.

We are firm believers in the concept of black swans and also in the notion that trends and opportunities can be identified with thoughtful analysis and judgments about the future.  We study and look to understand the environmental, technological, scientific, and geopolitical factors that will impact the future as well as the gray area phenomena on the fringe that could present unexpected challenges or opportunities.

We provide specific consulting services designed to help our customers and partners capitalize on business and investment opportunities.

Global Risk Analysis

Our intelligence services are designed to help manage uncertainty in complex environments by discreetly answering hard questions.

Drawing on a network of over 500 global security and intelligence professionals, OODA can provide advanced intelligence services, including early warning on emerging threats or ground-truth assessments to shed light on dynamic global risk situations. Our intelligence methodology blends the best practices of several analytical disciplines to determine probable futures and likely outcomes to some of the most difficult international questions.

Due Diligence

We support private equity firms, venture capital, and businesses looking to acquire other businesses. We can also help independently verify and place into context the discriminators of technologies in the firms you are considering.  Our Due Diligence services can also help customers appropriately investigate and qualify new business partners and investment opportunities or identify and manage regional, cultural, and security nuances in emerging international business environments.

Our clients include major telecommunications firms, defense systems integrators and IT firms with dramatic, “game changing” technology. We also help highly regulated businesses and government agencies respond to a continuous stream of new mandates for cybersecurity compliance.

Our experts can deliver market potential analysis, provide product offering development and create marketing/messaging plans.
