01 Jul Member Spotlight: Owlin

As one of the first startups to enter the Rockstart Accelerator, Owlin grew into a global venture in just a few years. While still small, the Amsterdam-based team is already expanding to the US where it signed major clients. Owlin’s success is mainly explained by their high-end news analysis platform providing real-time insights on +2.5 million sources worldwide ranging from the major media outlets to specific corporate websites and . Sjoerd Leemhuis, Co-Founder and responsible for Business Development: “We focus our products explicitly on banks and financial services because the data we produce is extremely valuable for financial institutions, enhancing three important segments; risk, trade & research. With the help of our analytics a company can apply accurate and real-time facts to assess their risks, make proper trading decisions and improve long term research activities.”

Owlin offers its clients an online dashboard that produces tailored and fully automated news feeds with risk alerts on markets, countries or specific companies. The only thing the client has to do, is indicate its priorities and main focus whereas Owlin’s platform takes care of monitoring, visualizing and ranking the data based on the needs of the client. As the ambitions of Owlin are high, Sjoerd Leemhuis outlines the main goals for the upcoming year: “We want to cover the news in as many markets as possible to serve our diverse amount of clients. First stop: the United States, a challenging market with many opportunities for us. We are aiming at a New York office before the end of 2016. , our machine-translation scripts already enable us to analyse news data in Dutch, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Polish. Soon we are adding Chinese, Russian and Turkish upon requests of our growing client base. Our company is growing fast and we are strengthening our team by attracting talented people, ready to enter other countries as soon as possible!”
