Founded in 2019

It all started a question, can patent data be used to predict the technological future? The answer, Yes! Conclusive evidence led to the founding of Focus.

Public release in 2021

After working on our forecasting technology in "stealth mode" for 2 years, the first public release came in Q4 of 2021. We acquired early customers like the US Navy, Reckitt, and TU-Delft.

Major update in 2023:

The release of Odin. With huge advances in natural language and vector search, Focus became fully operable via natural language. We raised a growth round, enabling us to continue to scale, growing the team and our capabilities.
