Our Story

We founded the company in late 2016 because we saw huge inefficiencies with the way that engineers, researchers, and scientists determined whether or not their ideas were novel or applicable in other technology areas

Companies – both large and small – need to know what’s special about the technical work that goes on within their organization. But engineers, researchers, and scientists are too busy solving problems to track down all similar ideas within their technology area and justify why their solution is different. This drastically slows down the speed at which innovation can occur by creating a huge disconnect between those that understand the technology and those that understand the market

Our top priority is making tools that engineers, researchers and scientists will get use out of. By making a tool that technical people want to use and running our advanced AI understanding over it, we realized that we could connect entire companies with a shared understanding, rapidly speeding up the pace of innovation
