Next Gen Market Research
Next Gen Market Research (NGMR) is a professional networking group for market research practitioners dedicated to exploring and pursuing innovative market research techniques and technologies.
Founded by Tom H. C. Anderson on LinkedIn in 2007, NGMR was among the marketing research industry’s very first online professional networking communities and quickly became home to market researchers who were, frankly, uninspired by the status quo in consumer insights. Anderson at the time explained, “The market has changed, customers have changed, but market research has changed little since the mid-90s and still offers only ‘1.0 insights.’ We need to get smarter or get left behind.”
NGMR today is the most active community in the industry. The group’s membership exceeds 25,000 market researchers worldwide—clients and suppliers—committed to pushing the envelope, blazing new trails, and continuously transforming the field of insights.
NGMR’s mission remains to enable market research professionals to stay ahead of the disruptive change that has become the hallmark of the Internet era, and to facilitate the advancement of marketing research capabilities.
