In 1996, a small group of political scientists and entrepreneurs decided to move their project, The Center for Geopolitical Studies at Louisiana State University, into the private sector. They traded Baton Rouge for Austin, Texas, an emerging center for innovation, and formed Stratfor around the idea that geopolitical analysis and accurate forecasting of global trends would be valuable to individuals and organizations seeking clarity and informed insight in today’s increasingly complicated international environment.
