About UsFreemavens uses data to develop growth strategies for some of the world’s best-known brands. A mix of analytics, data science, brand strategy, and big helpings of intuition, empathy, and creativity allows us to help our clients be, do & say more of what people want. Founded in 2013 and acquired by the Be Heard Partnership in 2017, we’re a growing company, and we’re truly international! From our office in London we’ve carried out more than 500 projects for Unilever, Chanel, Coca-Cola, Diageo, GSK, Mondelēz International and others in over 50 markets – all without a single translator. Most of our analysts and strategists are bilingual, allowing us to not just understand language from real people, but also the local nuances of culture.
