The Problem
Every data-driven industry - healthcare, financial services, technology, telecommunications, insurance - holds highly valuable datasets that are underleveraged due to privacy, security, and regulatory concerns.
The Product
LeapYear develops technology to solve this problem for the enterprise. The company has combined over a decade of research and hundreds of academic papers in advanced cryptography to develop a privacy-preserving platform for reporting, analytics, and machine learning. The product allows insights to be generated from sensitive datasets without exposing the underlying data.
Today, organizations use LeapYear’s technology to generate new business from previously inaccessible datasets - the platform is powering use cases including cross-border data sharing, cross-LOB data access, and third-party data commercialization.
The Team
LeapYear’s go-to-market team includes:
- solutions architects and data scientists with prior experience at Palantir, Citi, Amex, EY, Harvard, and BCG
- sales executives with deep domain expertise in financial services, healthcare, data commercialization, information security, and European markets.
