“Hart Business Research has a tremendous amount of experience in niche industries like ours so the transfer of knowledge and idiosyncrasies was much faster and easier. And with their experience in working with small companies, simplification of the process and the final reports came naturally. India Hart Wood was fantastic to work with; she took the lead in helping frame what we wanted in the end results; she brought insight and input at every turn; and remained open to listening, learning and “hearing” what the industry participants were providing.” – Sid Smith, Executive Director, International Art Materials Association (NAMTA.org)
