Elevate results with experience.

During his eight year tenure at Amazon, Dr. Manfred Bluemel realized there was an underserved niche in the research industry. Corporations needed high-caliber consumer insights, derived from advanced data-gathering techniques, interpreted by senior researchers and delivered with nimble cost-efficiency. In 2012, the solution became Zeitgeist Research, a virtual boutique firm with a team of highly experienced researchers. The Z-Team adheres to Amazon’s “customer-obsessed” core values and deploys innovative methodologies, while offering commonsense standardized pricing.
