About Us

Private Equity investors are highly paid professionals, but they spend a lot of their time wrestling with messy unstructured data. We are building an AI-powered platform to aggregate, structure and generate answers and insights from this data.

The first iteration of our product helps our customers automatically screen companies against fund specific due diligence criteria, provides a chat interface that can search across hundreds of financial documents and enables investors to effortlessly extract and consolidate multiple years worth of financials in seconds.

Our founding team has deep domain expertise in Private Equity and AI. Our CEO, Danyal, has 6 years of experience in Private Equity and Investment Banking and our CTO, Callum, has 6 years of experience as a Machine Learning and Full Stack engineer. Leveraging this experience, just one month after the company was founded we launched our product with funds managing over $9bn in assets. 3 months later we received our first revenue and have raised money from a fantastic network of angel investors and leading VCs such as Antler.

Our Philosophy

  • Small team: Small talented teams outperform large and slow-moving companies. We avoid bureaucracy, keep meetings to a minimum and focus on shipping features.
  • Simple where possible: We are passionate about new technology (in particular Machine Learning and AI), but we are more passionate about solving problems for our customers. We use “boring” solutions where we can.
  • Customer obsessed: We take every opportunity to talk to our customers. We obsess over their problems and work every day to make them happy.

  • Apply the latest Machine Learning and AI techniques to solve real world problems.
  • Build out our engineering team, alongside our CTO.
  • Participate in the strategy and product ideation session, influencing our product roadmap.

Working at Capsa AI will be hard work and at times it will be stressful. However, you will:

  • Experience the process of taking the company from 0.1 to 1.
  • Shape the company's vision and have a direct impact on its success.
