Founded and based in Singapore, Lynx Analytics’ mission is to create and demonstrate revolutionary business outcomes with the power of big data graphs.
It delivers critical B2B outcomes by deploying data science and business domain experts, graph-based algorithms, and a proprietary end-to-end enterprise platform.
Miklos Sarvary, then Dean of Executive Education at INSEAD in Singapore in 2010 convinced Gyorgy Lajtai, one of his MBA students to co-found, lead and head Lynx Analytics Pte Ltd with a team of 3 other professors. They banked on the idea of using big data graphs to power business decisions representing a fundamental shift from the incumbent way of capturing and analyzing enterprise data today.
The company was founded by a group of international INSEAD scholars, who published the world’s first social network study in 2007 - seven years ahead of Facebook’s own research on the same subject.
To develop the technology and to test it at a ‘real-world’ scale, Lynx decided to strategically focus on the Telecom, Mobile Advertising, Financial Services verticals first - all the while keeping an eye out for new complex problems to solve.
Lynx recently raised US$10m as our first-round seed funding, which values us at US$66m. "We heard that this ranks us as one of the highest-valued local technology startups in Singapore, or even regionally, for the first round. Of course, if it is true, we are flattered and hope for the great ecosystem here to replicate other success stories as well," Sarvary shared.
