Our Mission

Accelerate financial inclusion for people. Mitigate risk for financial institutions.

When co-founders Laura and Dmitry met, they were both looking for ways to make better predictions – Laura in credit risk, and Dmitry in financial markets. It felt like they were constantly being forced to make trade-offs between accuracy and transparency.

They envisioned a new approach to AI-based decision making – one where AI-enabled data insights and human understanding were combined to embrace the complexity of how important decisions really needed to be made.

Since then, we’ve focused on building Stratyfy intentionally with this vision at our core. Our belief is that highly accurate and interpretable AI should be the standard in financial services – because it’s what all customers and institutions deserve.

Our core values guide what we do everyday.
