AWARE was founded in 1995 by Arthur Weiss. Since 1995, the company has grown and now has an international reputation within the Competitive Intelligence community.
In addition to our founder and core office staff, AWARE uses a large team of independent researchers that we call upon as and when the need arises. In this way we are easily able to conduct any size project and at the same time keep our overhead costs (and what we charge our clients) down.
We can also guarantee that you will get an objective viewpoint as by using independent researchers, we can protect your identity and ensure that there are no preconceptions regarding your research needs.
AWARE also works closely with affiliated companies in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Australasia and has further contacts world-wide.
