Firmnav is a fast-growing FinTech startup. During the last 12 months, we have expanded from 3 founders to 13 talented employees.
We are a Copenhagen-based software and data science company, and we work with NLP-powered company and market analytics. We have developed the world’s first dedicated company search engine platform by collecting structure master data and combining it with unstructured text data. Our disruptive platform is built to deliver next-generation intelligence - as Google is the go-to for internet-information, Firmnav aims to be the go-to for company and market information.
During the last 9 months we have received a large investment from soon-to-go-public software company Trifork through their VC arm (which just sold Humio for 2.4bn DKK). Now we are spending all our efforts on building the best product and growing our sales before we raise our next round in the US.
