We verify claims made from any source that could potentially cause a seismic shift in public perception on topics of general importance in Singapore. We are entirely self-funded and unconnected to any third-party organisation, political, government or otherwise.
Black Dot Research is a sister company to strategic communications consultancy Black Dot, and the two companies enjoy synergies when it comes to building a solid understanding and in-depth appreciation of key market and social trends and issues. We also realised that our research work puts us in a position where we come into contact with and have the opportunities to review news and information from many different sources.
With the rising threat of fake news and online misinformation, we felt a social responsibility to help guard against deliberate online falsehoods by providing fact-checking as an independent entity.
