Open Source Research & Analysis + Fractional Product Strategy & Product Management

Swensonia is a product strategy and private intelligence consultancy built on a foundation of open source research and open design.


+ Product-led Strategy and Team Development
+ Competitive and Market Intelligence
+ Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Research & Analysis

Applied open source research is all about expecting the unexpected and following data-driven leads or experience-driven hunches, whether through the complex waters of the clear net, the bowels of some far-off library basement, or the murkiest niches of the darknet.

Product-led growth strategies require a consistent focus on customer experience, competitive intelligence and robust situational awareness. We ensure that our clients are equipped to respond swiftly to rapidly changing market requirements. Our clients are trained to develop business models that match and scale to exceed their founder’s vision. Why exceed? Because today’s plans are tomorrow’s distant memories. We work with superforecasters, scenario planners, user experience strategists and experts in the fields of market research, landscape analysis, operations, and information security to keep you on-mission and on-target.

All engagements are led by founder and principal Eric Swenson. Swenson integrates 30 years of experience leading product development for digital media including scholarly search & discovery products, scholarly communications information systems, inventors and investigative research specialists.
