About Us

Our Goal

We want qualitative research to be available to every organisation.

New technology has opened the doors for a new level of conversation, understanding and cooperation between brands and consumers, companies and employees, businesses and clients, charitees and donors, clubs and members…

Liveminds helps organisations understand what people need and want, so then they can provide it.

Our Story

Liveminds was born out of the interaction agency Liveline, who use the web to give people better ways to work and new ways to play.
For the last 6 years, Liveline’s team have worked on social app projects for leading brands such as L’Oreal, Paypal, Diesel, and O2 aswell as some of the most innovative tech start-ups in London.

Our team began working in online qual back in 2007, after a leading agency asked us to help them interact with participants online. We spent 3 years working with other people’s platforms, seeing researchers in pain and learning how the experience, could and should be, for them.
Then we started to make it.
Liveminds launched in May 2010 and we are proud to say is now used by a huge range of businesses around the world, from boutique creative studios to multinational research agencies.
