Our Story

The product of a chance meeting between a portfolio manager and a machine-learning academic, Amenity Analytics has automated the process of sifting through complex documents and narrative content to find and visualize meaningful data sets. Nathaniel Storch and Professor Ronen Feldman first met several years ago while Nathaniel was researching an investment. A conversation about natural language processing and its potential applications in the financial industry led to the realization that they had a game-changing opportunity to transform the worlds of business and technology.
