The new venture specialises in extracting high-level insights from any kind of written content including documents, news media, customer engagement and earnings call transcripts, internal and external reports, patents, court decisions, legal contracts and scientific papers.

Mihail Minkovski joins from SNV to become the Chief Financial Officer. Tony Burgess-Webb, formerly Chief Marketing Officer with WPP group company communications firm Hill & Knowlton, will become a board member. Peder Andreas Nergaard becomes Head of Sales & Product Management. CEO of Sigmai, Jesse Moore said: “We offer clients competitive advantage by using the latest machine learning technology to leverage our heritage and skills in extracting ‘AI’, aka actionable insights, from written content of any kind. “We think we can help organisations use our analysis of written data to understand their past better, respond more efficiently to current events – and in many cases predict their future.” Sigmai already claims a foothold in the financial sector via its Newsful app; hosted on Thompson Reuters.
