About Us

It all starts with a conversation.
BWG’s network brings together the best experts to create unmatched primary research, develop unique Insight Reports and to Connect mutually interested parties.

Our Story

The business started in 2013, out of a two person office we launched virtual Research Forum sessions in New York City. Since then, we launched virtual events and the size of our network exploded.

In 2016 we began publishing research and analysis (our Insight Reports) that shined a spotlight on key trends. In 2017, we launched BWG Connect to match mutually interesting B2B customers and select partners.

All along, we’ve held to our philosophy that everyone comes to contribute to a candid group conversation. And, no sales pitches!

BWG has become the trusted resource to track real world trends in technology, media, telecom, ecommerce, consumer, retail, payments and adjacent sectors.

Our Team

BWG Strategy’s team of industry relationship managers specialize in gathering our qualified executives - from platinum enterprise platform partners to entrepreneurs developing global iconic businesses - to share their insights on key market trends and industry landscape. For our in-person and virtual group experiences, our BWG Connect team shares it’s network wealth for more in-depth discussions.
