Methodology
Relsci has profiled more than three million influential decision makers and the organizations with which they are involved. The platform assesses the likelihood of a relationship between these influencers through proprietary algorithms that take into account qualitative and quantitative factors such as employment history, title, nonprofit involvement, organization size, industry, etc. We then used these mapped connections to determine the relationships and involvement of these owners.
