[STARTUPS 101]: Graphite Note – Run Your Data Models Without Code


NAME OF STARTUP: : Graphite Note – Predictive Analytics without coding.

THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:

In the decade of AI, if you are a data-driven company, you need a data scientist team to make sense of your data. But AI and data science projects can be notoriously slow, expensive, and difficult to manage – if you have funds for it.

And the results you get, all that charts and numbers are very hard to understand. If only there was a tool allowing you to run Predictive Analytics algorithms on your data, without writing a single line of code.

A tool, that helps you to combine visuals and narrative to share insights with your team so they can understand it. Well, now there is!

THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:

Hrvoje Smolic is a Founder and CEO at Qualia Data Sciences and Graphite Note. He was born in Croatia. In the first seven years after receiving a Masters in Physics (University of Zagreb), Hrvoje sharpened his skills first as a financial software developer, then business intelligence consultant, and finally BI Team leader.

In 2010 he founded Qualia which developed a data visualization software BusinessQ, used by 10.000 companies worldwide. He moved to Killarney, IR, in 2018 and founded Qualia Data Sciences, a company that is putting efforts into data science and data visualization in order to change the way people are doing business.
