Our Local Community

MECLABS Institute is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. While the discoveries from our research are shared with a national and even international audience, our hometown has a special place in our hearts.

If you’re also located in Jacksonville, Florida, and would like to collaborate in some capacity, please let us know. We’re always open to ideas.

Let's Collaborate


We lend our expertise to our local community.

We provide our expertise to help nonprofits in our local community. We have taken on The BairFind Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to finding missing children, as a pro bono Research Partner.




We roll up our sleeves and help our neighbors.

Aside from  leveraging out team's professional expertise, we also roll up our sleeves and lend a hand to charities like Mission House, OneBlood and First Coast No More Homeless Pets.


We participate in local events.

When presented with speaking opportunities, we always prioritize events in Jacksonville. For example, Managing Director and CEO Flint McGlaughlin gave the keynote address at the Jacksonville Business Journal’s inaugural Advertising & Marketing Summit.



We prioritize local talent.

We hire from the Jacksonville market and work with local suppliers and vendors whenever possible. Suppliers like Jacksonville’s AA Leather, a small business that handcrafts each and every copy of Flint McGlaughlin’s book – “The Marketer as Philosopher.”
