HOME OF THE MESE® COMPUTING SYSTEM
What is MESE®?
MESE® is a computing system that provides unique insights into privately-held businesses that otherwise disclose little or no public data about their financial or commercial status. Since 2008 it has helped executives guide billions of dollars in corporate strategy, R&D, innovation, venture capital, acquisitions and related growth initiatives.
What is Growth Science?
Growth Science is an R&D organization that facilitates collaborations between MESE® and a small group of market leading companies. Companies both contribute to, and benefit from, MESE's capabilities on an ongoing basis. By partnering with leading firms in thematically targeted industries, MESE® continually evolves while amassing one of the richest proprietary databases of corporate innovation and growth efforts in the world.
This allows the MESE® community to better identify growth opportunities, predict market outcomes and course-correct to deliver on their goals.
More than a decade ago Thurston started using data science to guide growth investments at Intel. These methodologies were further developed by Thurston and Professor Clayton Christensen through joint R&D between Intel and the Harvard Business School.
Thurston then teamed up with renowned investor William Hambrecht. The result was MESE® , an advanced computing system that has been custom built to deliver unique venture capital, innovation, M&A and strategic commercial insights.
Led by Thurston and Cristin Moran Ph.D., Growth Science facilitates select R&D collaborations with industry-leading firms each year. Corporate applications to collaborate with Growth Science are evaluated case by case and membership is strictly limited.
