I am trying to get a grasp on what this company actually does. The company description reads:
CognoLink is an independent research firm that manages an expansive and rapidly growing global network of industry specialists.
Founded in 2007 by two former Bain & Company consultants, we facilitate consultations between our clients – private equity firms, hedge funds and strategy consultancies – and industry specialists who can deliver vital insight ahead of key investment decisions.
Our industry specialists
Our network of specialists includes business executives, politicians, industry consultants, lawyers, accountants, doctors and academics who have been selected for their experience, insight and analysis across a broad range of industries and geographical areas.
Our clients include some of the world's leading hedge funds, mutual funds, private equity firms and strategy consultancies. They trust us to connect them with specialists who can provide them with the critical information they need to make informed business and investment decisions.
Our global team comprises dedicated professionals fluent in more than 30 languages and with local expertise across every continent. Our headquarters are based in London, and in 2010 our operations expanded to include an Asia-Pacific hub in Shanghai and a US office in New York. In 2012 we increased our presence in Asia with two new offices, in Hong Kong and New Delhi.
But after reading this I am still having a little trouble what there role is in the I guess consulting process. If anyone works at the firm or knows anything about there operations it would be very helpful.
