About TKA

The Knowledge Agency® (TKA) is a leading firm in the emerging fields of Strategic Intelligence and Knowledge Strategy.
We employ rigorous research and analytics to enable our clients to identify, measure, and manage opportunities for, and threats to, their performance, competitiveness, and enterprise value.
We are known for the integrity, candor, and discretion with which we conduct our practice, and for the quality of our work processes and products.
Our work has been been presented worldwide and in a range of business media: Baseline, The CEO Forum, Competitive Intelligence Magazine, Consulting Ahead, Forbes, Global Finance, Pharmaceutical Executive, and others.
TKA serves executives, boards, and investors in health care, consumer products, information and media, financial and professional services, and government agencies.


TKA began operations in 1989 as Horizon Softworks. Our first assignment was to design and build a sales win-loss database application in Paradox for a global consulting firm.
We incorporated as InfoStrat in New York State in 1996.  Since then our name has evolved, but our complementary roles of providing information to support business strategy and strategies for managing information are still core to our mission.


Today TKA is a wholly-owned operating subsidiary of T.W. Powell Co. Inc. (TWPCo), a privately-held, management-owned successor New York corporation (NYS DOS ID 2004483; DUNS number 022674308).  We are currently funded entirely through client engagements and private investments.
In addition to TKA, other properties of TWPCo include:
  • a diversified portfolio of intellectual properties that includes trademarks (registered and unregistered), copyrights (registered and unregistered), proprietary analytic frameworks and methodologies, and domain names
  • Eyes and Ears - a private-label business publisher
  • TKA Media - a digital media facility that produces training and promotional materials, presentation decks, and videos focused on knowledge services and strategies
