“Throughout our recent RSL jersey-front sponsorship selling process, we exclusively used Navigate Research for the partnership valuation. We had substantive C-level discussions with four separate companies, and not one person ever questioned the validity or legitimacy of any of the data or valuations that Navigate Research provided.” Andy Carroll VP of Corporate Partnerships, Real Salt Lake
