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.

Ripple is exactly what we were looking for in a strategic investor. They’ve provided not only guidance in running our business and building our product, but also valuable connections in our field with insightful ways to partner. The team is a pleasure to work with and are constantly the first among our investors to offer their help and their time.
