Our Team

About SumUp Analytics

Inspired by the challenges of the Information Age, SumUp Analytics was founded by former BlackRock and Goldman Sachs business leaders and a team of scientists obsessed with reinventing the way we interact with text data. We have since expanded, bringing together a team of sharp minds and creative talents with extensive industry experience.
