Relationship Science Partners with TEDxWallStreet, Providing Attendees Access to Acclaimed RelSci Platform

Relationship Science (RelSci), the ultimate tool for business development for professionals and dealmakers, announces a partnership with TEDxWallStreet, providing conference attendees free access to RelSci’s acclaimed business development platform to find fast, actionable, and relevant knowledge about how their business relationships intersect with others at the conference. This proprietary, in-depth research tool will facilitate business development among conference attendees.

The RelSci platform provides research-driven profiles on over 2.5 million top decision-makers and over one million organizations across the public, private, finance, and nonprofit sectors. Clients use RelSci to gain a deeper understanding of the people and organizations they want to do business with, leverage existing relationships that can provide warm introductions, and identify commonalities with other professionals that make every interaction a warm one.

“Conferences are potentially gold mines of opportunity for cultivating new business relationships, but who you meet has been largely dependent on who you randomly bump into,” said Neal Goldman, CEO and founder of RelSci. “Using RelSci to identify key potential partners and map out common relationships and interests before and after attending conferences makes an enormous difference for my own business development. I’m so pleased to begin offering this tool to conference attendees at TEDxWallStreet.”

TEDxWallStreet 2013 is a half-day, not-for-profit event that will take place at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, October 30, 2013. This year’s theme, Filling the Void,” has attracted a slate of bright and often unconventional thinkers from finance, business, technology, entertainment, social justice and the arts, who are set to speak passionately about local, global, social, and economic voids and how to fill them. Among the speakers at the conference are George Whitesides (CEO of Virgin Galactic), Bob Woodruff (American TV Journalist), Mary Ellen Iskenderian (CEO of Women’s World Banking), Brian David Johnson (Futurist at Intel and Author), Lynne Twist (Global Visionary and Founder, Soul of Money Institute), to name a few.

RelSci clients include acclaimed institutions working in the following sectors: Investment Banking, Wealth Management, Private Equity, Corporate, Hedge Fund, Professional Services, Creative Services, Nonprofit, and Law.

RelSci is funded with approximately $90 million from prominent individuals and institutions including Henry Kravis, Kenneth Langone, Stanley Druckenmiller, MacAndrews & Forbes, C.V. Starr, Hearst Corporation, Ron Burkle, Barry Sternlicht, RIT Capital Partners, Andrew Tisch, Joseph Perella, Harvey Golub, Reuben Jeffery, David Komansky (Former Chairman and CEO of Merrill Lynch), Randy Lerner (Former Chairman of MBNA), Stephen Luczo (Chairman and CEO of Seagate), William Rudin, and salesforce.com. The founder of Relationship Science is Neal Goldman, founder of Capital IQ, the financial database service that is used by many Wall Street firms. Mr. Goldman sold Capital IQ to McGraw-Hill in 2004.


The Relationship Science (RelSci) platform contains robust profiles on over 2.5 million important decision-makers and the one million organizations they work with across the public, private, finance, and nonprofit sectors. Access to RelSci provides individuals and organizations with the tools to map and build relationships with new clients, potential investors, strategic partners, and other important professionals.

RelSci provide two simple things:

  • Insights and ideas on how to best leverage meaningful relationships – both yours and your organization's
  • Research-grade intelligence on the people you do and want to do business with so every interaction is a warm one

RelSci unlocks the potential and unleashes the power of professional relationships for individuals and institutions.
