The BL Lab utilizes proprietary technology and analytics to develop fresh, powerful analysis and deliver difference-making insights. We leverage our dynamic analytical capacities with deep cross-disciplinary experience and a diverse network of global experts to create actionable intelligence designed to make direct impacts on your critical interests.
The BL Lab’s bespoke insights reach through the mega trends moving the modern macro-environment down to the project level. Our thoughtwork is both reality-based and wide-angled, orienting current events into meaningful context within the relevant sweep of history. Led by BL’s visionary CEO, Dan French, few other organizations can translate sophisticated macro strategies into appropriately tailored tactical applications. This custom-crafted approach is designed to directly respond to your specific concerns and help you chart the complexities of today’s ever-evolving global economy by identifying strengths, advantages and opportunities, but also diagnosing weaknesses, deficiencies, risks and threats with absolute candor.
Cities, companies, real estate developers, investment firms, governments, EDOs, nonprofits and family offices task the BL Lab with their preeminent concerns. Whether developing a grand strategy, reality-checking your current assumptions or future-proofing your portfolio of interests against an uncertain tomorrow, the BL Lab will help guide your progress from problem to solution and from vision to reality. Armed with the BL Lab’s uncommon caliber of work product, you’ll have the data, charts and illustrations to demonstrate the true value of your ideas and make your best arguments to decision-makers or the public.
