Powering decisions for the world’s leading companies

Thousands of organizations use AlphaSense to make smarter decisions with confidence and speed.


It started with CTRL+F

CEO and Founder, Jack Kokko, felt the pain of manual research early on. He started his career as an investment banking analyst in Silicon Valley, spending hours CTRL+Fing thousands of PDFs one keyword at a time—just to find a single insight.

Years later at The Wharton School, Jack met his co-founder and CTO, Raj Neervannan, and they were both shocked to realize that the research process and tools available hadn’t changed after all this time. In 2011, Jack and Raj sought to solve this problem by launching AlphaSense, a new type of search engine that leverages machine learning and natural language processing technology to enable professionals to cut through the noise and easily extract insights from thousands of sources and billions of data points.
