About the company

This startup founded 2021 in is building a first-of-its-kind "metrics in a box" SaaS platform for startups and scale-ups. Our purpose is to democratise enterprise-grade business intelligence to give every founder the best chance of success. Lack of data hygiene and access to reliable business analytics is one of the top reasons for startup failure and impacts everything from strategy & growth to fundraising.

A large number of founders lack the knowledge and resources to build an analytics infrastructure in-house and struggle to understand their company's performance, leaving them overly reliant on gut feeling.

They are on a mission to change that. We are bringing startup analytics into the 21st century. The office is headquartered in London and backed by seasoned FinTech investors.
