Enter Anurag and Rohit, a couple of nerds who get excited about any problem that can be solved by a few lines of code. Alexander reached out to Anurag and Rohit, and the trio started building the first ever iteration of Synaptic — a pilot project to track sentiments across earnings calls for a company. Anurag and Rohit were hooked on the problem space, and moved to Dubai to work with Alexander on realizing his vision (and building Synaptic 0.1 in the process).
As more use cases evolved, it became clear that the platform they were building was unique and valuable to all investors. In November 2016, Anurag and Rohit spun out of Vy Capital and moved back to India, taking with them the internal platform that we now know as Synaptic.
Our early believers
With investments from Ribbit, Felicis, and Vy Capital, we found a set of early adopters and started building Synaptic around our customers needs. This has always been the ethos for Synaptic, solving real customer problems from day 0.
