FinSentim is a newly formed fintech startup with a goal to change how financial companies do trend analysis through multilingual sentiment comprehension. We recently finished developing a prototype of the system to provide backend service in a B2B setting. We plan to hit the market within a year.

Our vision is to build a high growth company, offering cost-effective automation solutions to the financial sector using deep learning.

The core model is trained on our proprietary dataset, works multilingually, and captures underlying meaning even for texts with highly technical business terminology. Testing on third party datasets in English, Chinese, and Swedish languages showed significantly higher accuracy scores compared to direct competitors.
