About the company

Applied XL is a real-time information company that combines the context of human experts with the scale of machine learning to anticipate disruptions to the health of people, places and planet. We connect and monitor disparate sources of data to transform partial perspectives into complete understanding.

In the next ten years, society will face extraordinary challenges — from the increasing probability of global pandemics to crumbling infrastructure and the effects of climate. The disruptions to come call for an urgent reassessment of how information is sourced, because good information plays a vital role in driving sustainable solutions. The resources that decision-makers currently use to gather and analyze information are siloed, often showing disparate and incomplete views of reality.

We have brought together top-tier venture capital and strategic partners at the forefront of information, emerging technology and product design who support Applied XL’s long-term vision. To learn more about us please visit
