Company Overview: Omelas's platform takes billions of points of publicly available data and distills them into an easy-to-understand, easy-to-use, and fully customizable platform. By automating, quantifying, and integrating the different approaches to understanding geopolitical events, we give the deepest ever understanding of potential risks. Basically the Google AdWords for Counter-Terrorism.
Our Story: Ripple first met Omelas at the MIT Alumni Angel Pitch Day in Boston. The founders were extremely impressive and Ripple saw the potential this platform could have on preventing terrorist attacks. Since investing in their seed round with another VC fund, Evanna and Ben have been amazing to work with and always provide very detailed and thoughtful monthly updates. The company has some of the hardest work ethic we have even seen.
Since seeing the company grow substantially over the past year, alongside the team’s proven track record of execution, we were more than happy to support them to prepare for their Series A round in 2019.
