About Core Agenda
Core Agenda builds and operates businesses that spur faster, more-effective decision making. We focus on developing world class ventures that leverage information technology, but are driven through an operating lens rather than a technology one.
One of our core operating principles is our commitment to putting the interests of those who use our services ahead of our own. We always keep the information about our users confidential. The ability of our users to conduct themselves privately is a key feature in all of our businesses. This limits the extent to which we can offer advertising to marketers who prefer access to individual profiles. However, as a matter of policy, we’d rather limit the portion of revenues derived from advertising sources than violate user trust by revealing sensitive personal information.
Another of our core operating principles is a focus on preventing commercial interests from corrupting the insights that we facilitate. We’ve too frequently observed business models that allow hidden vendor interests to artificially skew what publicly is assumed to be unbiased perspectives. Our businesses maintain independent foundations with no other agendas other than to deliver the best to the communities we serve.
In sum, we strive to save users time and money, as well as open them up to new business opportunities, by providing a diverse spectrum of independent, actionable insights that are realistically implementable from the business trenches rather than reflecting idealistic theory.
