Sentifi savours success at Swisscom start-up challenge
Sentifi bested more than 230 rivals to win the challenge. Along with five other winning companies, Sentifi will participate in a one-week business accelerator programme in October, and receive mentoring from Swisscom and venture lab experts.
The jury consisted of members of the Swisscom Group executive board, Swisscom Ventures, and business angels and investors.
Sharing the winner’s circle with Sentifi are AAAccell, an artificial intelligence (AI) powered asset and risk management solution provider; Rovenso, a maker of agile seeing robots; Dotphoton, a raw image compression solution; and Exeon Analytics, a cybersecurity firm.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, Sentifi offers its Sentifi Alerts solutions.
This scours more than five million relevant sources from the news media, blogs, and social networks to signal investors when significant events in the financial markets occur.
The customisable, real-time alerts give investors the opportunity to make adjustments to their asset holdings – whether to seize new opportunities or minimise potential risks.
Sentifi appointed Marina Goche as chief operating officer in May. The same month, the company announced that Walter Berchtold, an industry veteran with board and executive experience at Credit Suisse and Falcon Private Bank, would join Sentifi’s advisory board.
Last month, Sentifi teamed up with Argus Data Insights, integrating its crowd intelligence technology with Argus Predict IndustryScan solution.
