Transforming the global knowledge exchange landscape was born out of the frustration felt by the founders, Graham and David, during their time working in investment funds and healthcare companies respectively, where they faced challenges in identifying who the real world-leading experts were in niche but rapidly evolving fields.

Teaming up with computer scientists, they began applying AI and machine learning to redefine the way knowledge and expertise is identified and accessed globally.

The team has grown to include creative, innovative, and ambitious professionals from many disciplines, working together to build a platform that understands the world's knowledge, connecting our customers to precisely the right expertise every time.
