VERDE is a full-service strategic research and insight practice built on the belief that globally our economies and societies are underpinned by and reliant on science to make informed decisions.

At VERDE, we blend technology and statistical tools with traditional market research solutions to uncover insights which help our clients propel their businesses forward.

Building on a strong research foundation, our passion and purpose is to bring research to life to solve the most complex issues of our clients.

The link between evidence, data, factual analysis and independent advice from multi-disciplinary experts is today critical and valued. In the markets we operate, there is an abundance of potential which can be delivered. We specialise in the latest research methodologies and most innovative offerings, ranging from data consulting, surveys, modelling, data-driven communications and creative works. Creative and inquisitive, we are passionate about empowering our clients to make the decisions that matter. We work with organisations to define and overcome strategic challenges – helping them get to grips with the markets in which their brands operate. We use the right approach and methodology to deliver robust insights, strategic counsel and targeted recommendations that generate change and positive outcomes. Our clients trust us for our high quality work as well as our creative storytelling techniques that connect with key stakeholders.


We use the latest research methods to help brands identify nuanced customer intelligence to revolutionize their thinking and give them an edge. Our clients don’t view us as simply a market research provider. They think of us as thoughtful explorers, creative thinkers, skilled statisticians and as a partner that empowers them to move beyond the superficial by revealing and leveraging hidden consumer truths that propel revenue growth.

We empower our clients to revolutionize their thinking.

Our services cover quantitative techniques, qualitative techniques, advanced analytics, surveys, data-driven communications and strategic consulting, which are regrouped under four main themes – BRAND, CONSUMER, INNOVATION, STRATEGY.



Brands need a constant influx of new energy, inspired thinking and game-changing intelligence in order to charge ahead of the market, capture greater share and exceed consumers’ expectations. We inspire fresh brand thinking by enlisting out clients in a dynamic collaboration, so that they:

  • Gain an edge by uncovering what separates them from the competition
  • Discover hidden game-changers to take their brand to the next level
  • Anticipate hurdles and course-correct long before they cause problems
  • Validate their brand identity by knowing how they are perceived and what the brand represents


Consumers are more and more demanding today but, at the same time, they are more receptive to ideas and feedback and have a lot to share about what it takes to gain more of their spending. We provide high quality and focused insights so that everything our clients do is a direct reflection of what their consumers want by:

  • Elevating the customer experience by knowing what they want and when they want it
  • Illuminating ratings and data points with the voice of the customer
  • Uncovering pivotal moments by deconstructing your consumers’ path to purchase
  • Tracking trends and evolution in consumer demand and expectations


Whatever the type of research, we integrate innovative techniques and technology solutions to deliver on our clients’ needs and exceed their expectations. Our R&D personnel ensure that we are always at the top of what is happening in market research around the world, and how clients’ technological needs are evolving. Our latest innovative offerings:

  • Social media analytics uncover insights about the voice of the public in additional to what is happening on traditional media
  • Media services in relation to monitoring and providing a 24/7 real time notification based system with a data management portal
  • Industry trackers provide indications of evolution of market segment and impacts of events
  • Panel surveys allow for fast and easy surveys, directly reaching the public


Business landscape is constantly evolving. We work with our clients as a true strategic partner, applying rigorous standards and creative ingenuity to unlock breakthrough insights about their brands, customers, category and the evolving culture in which they operate. Our services include:

  • Design studies and conduct longitudinal program evaluations from an activity’s inception through various milestones to outcomes, impacts and cost-related analysis.
  • Analyse and make sense of unused data to provide direction in the strategy
  • Undertake customer satisfaction and customer journey research, and provide recommendations for an increased client engagement

Our views and studies are sought at national and international level. We welcome your views and opinions on our work. You may share subjects with us, that you think will have a positive impact on our society and stakeholders.


The founding partners and the team of VERDE have a strong commitment to entrepreneurship. Underpinning everything we do is data. In order to progress into the future we need to understand what has (and hasn’t worked) in the past. The more we know about our consumers and products, the better chances we have of anticipating their needs in the future. That is how we shape up new companies for them to have the best chances to succeed in the marketplace.

We also partner with several companies which believe in our capacity to create value, with thinkers, designers, engineers, and technologists, to work together to launch and scale innovative ideas in very big ways.

We partner with entrepreneurs (early stage to late stage) to accelerate growth and commercialize innovative ideas in any sector where we find value in the concept and its viability over time.

VERDE’s engagement is in powering the incubation and VC arm, while supporting local businesses through the BFC19 initiative. Details are available on www.mauritius.bfc19.com
