Welcome to the FutureForces Database of the largest independent future institute in Europe. For almost 20 years, we have been analyzing changes in technologies, value chains and business models in various industries. To the basic database with several hundred in-depth interviews with the strategy and technology heads of the world's trend-setting companies, 10 new forecast interviews are added every week.
How do probable future forecasts differ from wishful thinking? The first step on the way to the future picture of your company is the correct identification of the most important trend-shaping players in your industry, the so-called future forces for your business model.
The researchers and strategy consultants of the 2b AHEAD Institute have developed a special tool for this purpose: The Future Forces Map. With it, you can quickly identify who those 20 most important players in the world are whose decisions today will influence your own business model.
In the FutureForces Database, you have access at any time to the latest forecasts of scientific futurology, specifically for your industry. You will find the analyses of the most important technological and societal drivers in your industry, the future forecasts of the global trend-setting players in your industry and their impact on value chains and business models in your industry. The FutureForces Database is updated weekly.
The FutureForces Database is the largest corporate futures research database in Europe. It breaks down the findings of scientific futurology concretely to individual industries. Companies regularly use the FutureForces Database and the benefits of our Future Forces Mentoring to review their corporate strategy. Premium members also use our exclusive CxO Circle for continuous sparring on your future strategies.

Future research emerged as a scientific discipline in the middle of the last century. It is offered as a field of study at universities around the world. 2b AHEAD, with its more than 50 employees, is the biggest independent future institute in Europe. Our FutureForces Database is developed by graduated future researchers in collaboration with professional strategy consultants. We utilize methods from qualitative social studies (Delphi, future scenarios) to lead businesses to reliable future visions and future-proof strategies. At the core of our scientific analysis are in-depth interviews with 1,500 globally recognized leaders in strategy, innovation, and technology across all industries. The decisions of today create the industry environment of the future. Understanding their motivations, intentions, constraints, fears, and hopes aids to develop a future-proof business strategy and to reach the best possible target vision.
With the FutureForces Database, we allow businesses to access our interviews and studies with the most important leading actors in your industry at all times. In hundreds of interviews, you will find specific analyses of those driving forces that your business will have to react to in the next ten years. In our future studies, you will find the new value chains, customer segments, and business models of your industry in ten years, which should serve as the target vision of your strategy.
