Elevated Insights is NO LONGER taking submissions from El Paso County area businesses or nonprofits for pro bono research to be conducted in 2018. Thank you to all that applied!


Last year’s pro bono research was awarded to the Springs Rescue Mission who received ethnographic qualitative understanding of local panhandlers that would typically cost over $25,000!

This free market research could consist of quantitative findings (i.e. surveys among hundreds of respondents) or qualitative insights (in-depth discussions or focus groups among key audiences) to help local entities:

  • Understand and meet customer/consumer needs
  • Get feedback to positioning, marketing or advertising
  • Connect with donors or stakeholders
  • Address current business challenges/issues
  • Minimize risk of future business decisions

“There is little research around the nation on the topic of panhandling. Elevated Insights’ pioneering work helped us understand the plight of individuals panhandling in Colorado Springs. It aided us – and many city leaders – with insights to make better decisions. Today, we’re more informed on how we can work together with the community to help hurting neighbors discover better housing, health, and work. We’re thankful for Elevated Insights’ quality work and just as importantly their heart to see Colorado Springs thrive.”
