CircleUp harnesses the power of machine learning and predictive analytics to discover some of the fastest-growing companies in the consumer & retail sector. Our mission is to help entrepreneurs thrive by giving them the resources and capital they need. We are building a predictive data system called “Helio” to bring the data-driven revolution that has occurred in the public markets to the private markets, starting with consumer & retail. We’ve already caught the eye of companies such as Forbes, Bloomberg, Fast Company and the Financial Times.
CircleUp has been named one of the Top 5 Most Disruptive Companies in Finance by CNBC, one of the 50 Best FinTech Innovators by KPMG, Top 3 Most Innovative Companies within Data Science by Fast Company and one of America’s Most Promising Companies by Forbes. We are backed by top-tier investors including Google Ventures, Union Square Ventures (backers of Etsy/Kickstarter), and the ex CEOs/Presidents of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Thomson Reuters, the Stanford Endowment and Capital One.
