Founded: 2013

“EdjAnalytics provides “edge” to companies and people in competitive markets. We do this by solving very complex problems in unique and creative ways that allow us to look at each question as if it is a game to be won or lost. Each game is structured so that the outcome is optimized for the users’ unique requirements. This approach has been helpful to clients as diverse as professional football teams, commodity traders and corporate executives. We believe that this method can be used for scores of other applications, and we’re in the process of building our business to meet those needs.

As people who have never been accused of being trendy, we like to emphasize that many of our models were built before anyone heard of Big Data. However, much of our success is built on our ability to accurately and objectively comb through large piles of bits and bytes.”
