Samo Burja is a sociologist and founder of Bismarck Analysis—for navigation-grade analysis of institutions, industries, and live players.
About: I research how civilizations function. I write and speak on history, institutions, and strategy with a focus on exceptional leaders that create new social and political forms. I have systematized this approach as “Great Founder Theory”. In 2017, I founded Bismarck Analysis, a consulting firm that investigates the political and institutional landscape of society. There has never been an immortal society. Regardless of how technologically advanced our own society is, it is unlikely to be an exception. To secure a positive common future that defies these odds, we must understand the hidden forces that shape society. I founded Bismarck Analysis to help companies, governments, philanthropists, and investors in their vital role of maintaining and advancing our civilization. We build long-term partnerships with select clients who aim to make a difference in the world.
I’m a Research Fellow at the Long Now Foundation where I study how institutions can endure for centuries and millennia. I’m also Senior Research Fellow in Political Science at the Foresight Institute where I advise how institutions can shape the future of technology.
