Hinge Research Institute

At the Hinge Research Institute, we conduct and publish independent research on professional services firms. This groundbreaking research is available nowhere else. The Institute is dedicated to achieving two goals:

1. Uncovering the marketing strategies and business challenges of high-growth professional services firms; and

2. Giving B2B companies and associations the data and insights they need to understand and profit from the professional services industry.

We know professional services.

After all, we’ve spent over a decade studying over 25,000 professional services buyers and sellers.
