Our customers are business leaders, professionals, and high fliers looking for insight. Customers get 10 questions, 10 respondents, and a 15 page hand-written report.
Our business has sprung from a decade of manually providing feedback to the world\’s best executives, and our passion to provide massive amounts of insight to improve the world.

We are using the latest technology to rapidly update the model and provide the next level of leadership data, and meaningful data that will help individuals, HR, leaders, recruiters, and the world.
We\’re building a leadership AI.
