Olen Research Associates, Ltd.

High Value Low Cost

McKinsey, BCG, Bain. We know them. Great researchers: top-tier prices.

Some firm using crowdsourcing on the Internet: Craigslist sourced fitness instructors doing market research.

We're closer to the first but understand why the second is appealing: they're cheaper, faster, and whine less. That's why we created Olen.

Olen. Our people make the difference.


About Us


Our research has been used in the Fortune 500, by top-tier news organizations, and leading law firms.


Ever had five big law firms trying to pick apart your research and failing? We have, while working for another big law firm. We don't miss.

Data Literate

The devil isn't in the details: it's in the data. We routinely handle analysis of complex data sets.


We like to win. You probably do too. If you don't care there are cheaper firms that hire gym instructors to do your research (unsolicited advice: develop a backup career plan).


Tasked with searching for conflicts of interest we found one the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency missed. The firm in question was shuttered weeks later.


The Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) database is a mess. A leading news organization hired us to analyze it. Their story? The GM ignition key problem.
