Our Story

The Predata Story

Predata was founded to uncover and analyze the most valuable anticipatory intelligence from public data sources.

In 2015, the founding team and a group of Princeton engineers came together to build a technology solution that could parse publicly available data and generate indicators of risk. Together, they developed machine-learning algorithms that could not only quantify current security, political and financial trends, but could anticipate them as well.

Predata’s platform uses this technology to help clients across industries anticipate risks and identify opportunities. With offices in New York and Washington D.C. and our diverse team from the worlds of finance, data science, and international relations, Predata is now a rapidly growing company that’s helping solve some of the world’s most complex challenges.
