ABOUT W5

Our home in North Carolina’s Research Triangle sets us apart. It’s cosmopolitan yet casual, smart and humble, metropolitan but Southern in style. Most importantly, people don’t come to the Triangle just to work, but to live.

W5 embodies this place – thoughtful and approachable. We take time to address our clients’ needs with custom-designed research and strategic solutions that are at once rigorous and relatable. The variety of our research studies keep things busy, but makes it interesting.

MEET THE TEAM

Creative, Intelligent, Collaborative – just a few words that represent the W5 team. We are an eclectic group of people –
statisticians, designers, anthropologists, journalists – bound by a common curiosity to understand people, products and brands.
We have a passion for the work we do and the industry we serve.
