Our Mission and Plans

Owlin’s mission is to shape a better-informed world.

The company was launched in the aftermath of the financial crisis when the main problem was the lack of sufficient information to ensure adequate risk management.

The challenge we have today is the surplus of information, resulting in excessive noise and making it hard to distinguish what is relevant and what isn’t.

To overcome it, we plan to continue expanding the scope of our platform, introducing coverage for all types of variables and data points and employ the power of AI and NLP to help our clients build even more accurate models.

Our end goal is to bring clients a truly holistic 360-degree market view with access to a broad range of relevant data sources in a single end-to-end dashboard and API kit, effectively making us the one-stop-shop for actionable intelligence.
