Lucid is a software company delivering the power of human answers on a massive scale. We built Fulcrum, the first global marketplace for market research sample (that means human beings who answer questions), and introduced programmatic buying and selling to the market research industry. We also created Federated Sample, a full-service sample provider that, using our proprietary technology, empowers our clients to do world-class market research. Over five billion questions have been asked and answered on our global platform. Human data on this scale gives us an amazing opportunity to solve problems with software. We were founded and are based in New Orleans, Louisiana. We’re moving fast, and growing fast. Both of our business units have doubled in the past year, and in the fall of 2015 we will open our second office, in London, reflecting our truly global business. Lucid was founded in 2010 as Federated Sample, LLC; the parent company was renamed in 2015, keeping the Federated Sample and Fulcrum business units as thriving brands. The name Lucid reinforces our commitment to creating clarity through the power of massive data.
