March: Thicket incorporates as an LLC.
April: We work with our first client, Foundation Rwanda.
May: Development on the Possibility Engine begins.
June: Thicket's team starts working together at our new office in Brooklyn.
July: We design our first system model for the Aspen Institute's Big Data seminar.

December: We release our first video explaining the science behind the Possibility Engine.

That's right, our first year ends with the official release of a beautiful new video introducing fuzzy cognitive mapping, the methodology underlying the Possibility Engine. Fuzzy cognitive mapping is a powerful new way to transform people's values, opinions, priorities, and perspectives into decision modeling tools. Watch the new video to learn more.
