Our Story

Stratifyd began as government-funded research on the ways AI could ingest, analyze, and visualize unstructured data. Our founders – Derek Wang, Li Yu, and Thomas Kraft – saw the potential of this work and launched the platform in 2015.

Since launching, more than 20 Fortune 1500 companies have used our platform, we specialize in key verticals (Financial Services, Pharma, and CPG), and we’re the fastest-growing tech company in Charlotte.

Our Mission

Our mission at Stratifyd is to interpret and predict human intent to drive actionable insights. We created an AI-powered platform which collects structured and unstructured data, providing our clients intelligence on both macro and micro levels. Our work led to developing predictive analytics within our platform to provide full coverage around customer intent.

The governing principle behind our platform is to harness the power of AI and bridge the gap between data and self-service analytics, so that every employee can contribute insight-driven decisions. By democratizing AI, the potential of our space is limitless.
