Our Philosophy

Think Broad, Mine Deep, Explain Simply. This philosophy guides everyone at our organization. In real terms it means we’re producing insights before you have to ask, and delivering these strategy recommendations through simple, beautiful reports.

Our Approach

We take a customized approach to research and data, using whatever information you already have, whatever is publicly available, and generating whatever else is needed through a mix of qualitative and quantitative design, economic modeling, and advanced data science. We guarantee that we produce the most actionable information for your organizational goals.

About Our Name

Emperitas is a hybridization of two Ancient Latin words: Auctoritas, which means to have influence or respect based on results, and Imperium, which is the right to direct and guide. Together these words form the core of who we are as a tech company, striving to win your business because we’ve earned your trust and respect through proven expertise.

Our History

At the depths of the Great Recession our CEO, Luciano Pesci, was a graduate student in Economics at the University of Utah. With motivation from a colleague in the master’s program, he decided to help undergraduate economists from their department find jobs. Relying on his professional and academic background in data analytics and research, Luciano began teaching engaged-learning courses bringing students, faculty and organizations from the community together to tackle real-world research problems.

Looking back now it’s no surprise our program was a huge success. Organizations from the Silicon Slopes called on our team for research help. With each new client came new business problems and new research skills, and we quickly found ways to automate data analysis so our team could focus on it’s true art: strategy recommendations.

Our organization was quickly recognized as experts in the field, and after four years, 40+ client projects and hundreds of students trained, we started a private venture, Emperitas, to provide agile research to medium sized businesses facing strong competition in their vertical.
