STRATODEM ANALYTICS FOUNDING TEAM
Michael Clawar co-founded StratoDem Analytics after four years as an analyst with Reach Advisors, a strategy, research, and predictive analytics firm, where Michael pioneered some of the firm’s work in economic demography. At Reach Advisors, real estate clients deployed his analysis to help create 10%-15% premiums over competitors. Private equity clients deployed his analysis to avoid major losses relying on existing local-market demographic and economic data from governmental and third-party data providers, and instead recraft their investment theses based on his analysis. Michael graduated from Boston University with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and economics and a master’s degree in statistics.
