Praescient Analytics, LLC is a Veteran Owned Small Business based in Alexandria, Virginia. Our aim is to revolutionize how the world understands information by empowering our customers with the latest analytic tools and methodologies.
Praescient was founded by a group of former military intelligence analysts, software engineers, and entrepreneurs with a common passion for analysis. Many of us have deployed to combat zones across the globe, others have fought corruption from the halls of premier academic institutions, and still others have made their mark by going head-to-head with the media moguls of Hollywood. We believe that this diversity is what makes us high-impact leaders and uniquely positions us to make a difference.
Praescient is committed to hiring and retaining individuals who actively seek to play a vital role in shaping the future of analysis. The Leadership Team is dedicated to empowering our employees with the information and resources they need in order to advance one’s professional knowledge and skills while exceeding the expectations of our clients.
Our company is structured around small, focused teams comprised of intelligent and passionate people in order to encourage ownership and innovation. We don't take shortcuts or make excuses but strive daily to ensure that our analysts and clients remain operationally relevant and on the cutting edge.

Our highly-respected team is passionately dedicated to aiding legislators, decision makers, executives, and senior leaders across government, federal, private, and public organizations.
