The Research Rally is a one-day event we take around the world - next up Paris. This one-day event pairs the skills of data, research and insights professionals with local start-ups who are looking to improve their business models, products or services.

The purpose? Solve the business problem for the start-up using data, research and insights!

Start-ups and insights professionals form teams and compete against each other, with an eventual winner chosen by a jury of experts for the team that develops the most viable business model and working (technical) solution and the most value for the start-up.

Showcase your expertise and build a network with potential future clients at ESOMAR’s Research Rally!
