Our Journey

Princeton grads Greg Ugwi and Justin Zhen founded Thinknum in 2014 after frustration with a shared problem: where to find structured data from the web to feed investment strategies? We've signed over 300 enterprise clients since those heady days, and become one of the largest and most respected names in the alternative data space.

We’re proud of the role we play in helping alternative data ‘cross the chasm’ to become a truly mainstream technology. Below are some of the highlights from our journey so far.
