At Prolific, our mission is to give researchers across the world access to the highest-quality data. We empower people to target and manage research participants from our diverse and vetted pool – so they can deliver world-changing research and the next generation of AI.

Today, we're excited to announce a major milestone in our journey. Prolific is growing in the United States!

An exciting expansion in the US market

For years, we've had the privilege of working with companies across the US.

Remesh partners with Prolific to scale their AI-powered market research platform. By connecting their product to Prolific’s pool of 120K+ active and vetted participants, Remesh has been able to rapidly execute high-quality projects, experiencing a sub-1% removal rate for qualitative research.

Researchers at Google have also benefitted from Prolific’s unrivalled participant pool, swiftly recruiting large numbers of research participants from niche demographics for pre-testing, pilot studies, and larger scale online experiments.

Esteemed academic institutions like Yale and Columbia University also use Prolific. Yale’s research into how humans learn and make decisions saw them collect huge volumes of data on Prolific in a matter of hours. Researchers at Columbia University have used Prolific for projects including research into beliefs about climate change.

We’ve also played a pivotal role in research run by the Sentience Institute. The think tank researches how people respond to AI with different levels of sentience. Thanks to Prolific, its researchers can rapidly gather data to learn more about how attitudes to AI are evolving in a fast-changing industry.

From industry leaders such as and Kickstarter to institutions like Stanford University, we’ve helped many US clients collect bias-free, accurate data at scale since launching in 2014.

Now, we’ve expanded our footprint and opened a new office in the vibrant heart of New York City.

This isn't about setting up in a new location. It's about strengthening our existing ties with the research community. We’re fostering closer relationships with our customers and creating new opportunities to grow and work together - so we can keep empowering people to deliver research that will change the world.

Prolific’s growth in the United States is an exciting milestone. Opening our new office in the bustling heart of New York City isn't just about expansion - it's about deepening our connections with vibrant research communities and fostering collaborations that will drive meaningful change all over the world.
