The newly launched Stratfor Worldview will redefine access to geopolitical intelligence, analysis, and forecasting
Geopolitical events affect every business and social system — causing a dynamic flux of thoughts, ideas, and revolutions. While there is so much data around geopolitical events, that if they were analyzed, could help business leaders make more informed decisions. Stratfor understands the necessity of cutting across the noise with its exclusive world geopolitical observations and investigations in a largely complex international environment, which can help organizations plan and organize their business operations and expansion ideas.
Independent, Objective, Accurate and Actionable Insights on the Events Influencing International Business Affairs
To help businesses with meaningful insights into how geopolitical events would affect businesses, Stratfor announced Worldview. Stratfor Worldview is a new and ingenious digital platform that will engage interested individual and organizations with expert views and impactful insights on geopolitical intelligence, interpretations, and predictions.
As Dave Sikora, Executive Chairman at Stratfor, puts it, “Never before have the unbiased, sober insights offered by Stratfor’s analysts been more important.”

Worldview is easily the most effective Next-Gen Stratfor experience that enables individuals and organizations to make greater use of Stratfor’s independent, objective, accurate and actionable insights on the major events influencing international affairs. Teakwood Capital, a Dallas-based private equity firm, provided comprehensive financing for the creation of Stratfor Worldview. To create and design Worldview, Stratfor partnered with Thinktiv, an Austin-based business innovation firm.
According to Sikora, the launch of Worldview marks the culmination of year-long effort and a major investment. Worldview leverages emerging digital technologies, advanced marketing automation, providing a clear corporate vision for Stratfor’s role in helping professionals and organizations succeed.
Sikora adds, “In a time of conflicting global narratives and disorienting political hyperbole, we believe that strategic analysis grounded in geopolitics is necessary to make informed decisions in an increasingly complex international environment. Stratfor Worldview makes that insight more accessible than ever before.”

“Your World. In Context.“
Stratfor Worldview was launched in last week of April 2017. The launch was accompanied by Stratfor’s new corporate logo and tagline, “Your World. In Context.” Before this, Stratfor launched Threat Lens™, which focuses on providing industry-driven insights with a more specific context pertaining to Stratfor’s core methodology of interpreting significant global events of today and forecasting major developments of tomorrow.
“Worldview introduces an innovative new design that I believe will radically accelerate our members’ understanding of the interconnectivity and directionality of key global trends,” said Stratfor Editor-in-Chief David Judson. “It’s a much deeper experience and a fundamental shift in the way we share the underlying methodology that guides all our work, and I believe it will enhance our members’ ability to make decisions and understand the world.”
Automatic access to Stratfor Worldview would be given to all its members as the company concentrates on offering its unbiased views on global developments and geopolitical issues that occur spontaneously at random with underlying and predictable connotations.
