The Speciate Story

Unlocking the power of unstructured data.

For nearly a decade, I led PwC’s Global Data & Analytics Practice. During that time, we worked with hundreds of complex data models, particularly around trend forecasting.

I realized there was tremendous opportunity to capitalize on the unstructured data all over the web. Together with the best data scientists and product designers I knew, I set out to build a company that could finally harness that data.
