We are growth partners for new-age businesses.

We started out in 2009 to help upstart internet businesses scale efficiently with dedicated high-quality teams in India. Over the following years, we developed deep expertise in capturing, cleansing, structuring, modelling, and analysing data to help these businesses get the most out of their ever-growing deluge of information.

We’re practitioners. Not academics.

We believe data science can help build enduring businesses only when it is driven by exceptionally talented people. That's why our continually expanding team brings together business builders from venture capital, management consulting, finance, tech, data science, ITeS and process outsourcing.
