Our Core Team

Selected team members

Our core team has a unique track record of 15+ years of systematic ecosystem monitoring and a pioneering role in applying social network analysis.

It is a highly complementary and diverse team (in terms of nationality, languages, education, prior experience, and locations) and we set high standards in terms of education and company specific training (SNA Lab for students, see also www.snalab.com as well as SNA at Work for academics) to identify future full time colleagues, working very close cooperation with leading universities.

Our team has won over two dozens of international, presidential and regional awards for its research with multiple seminal papers that have been cited globally by leading sources and developed unique processes, methodologies, systems, and databases to run our Ecosystem Intelligence service, the futrue of actionable intelligence.

The team has experience from 250 plus international projects with sector specific know how but also a deep understanding for the investment industry as well.

SNA Lab members
In order to create greater awareness but more importantly identify future colleagues, we initiated the SNA Lab in 2013 to train young talented people in social network analysis and specifically its application to organizational phenomena, see also www.snalab.com for more details. There you will find a selected overview of prior SNA Lab members.


Our Core Team

Team of well known academics interested in advancing the application of SNA among Bachelor, Master and Doctoral students as well as Executives in order to increase its importance and awareness among future and existing business leaders. Countries in which professors among others teach and research are Australia, China, Emirates, Germany, Pakistan, Qatar, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and USA. Hereby we move SNA beyond the investment industry as a basis for other sector specific business strategy developments and implementations. SONEAN provides the infrastructure for our academic initiative SNA at Work. Regular meetings (the last ones in February and March 2016) with onsite involvement of academics as visiting scholars help to share latest ideas as well as findings.
