I’m thrilled to announce that RapidMiner has been nominated for the Company of the Year in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Blockchain Technology at the New England Venture Capital Association’s 2018 NEVY Awards. The NEVYs, now in their sixth year, celebrate New England’s top innovators, investors and companies across the region’s health care, life science and tech communities. Final winners will be unveiled at​ ​The NEVYs award ceremony​ on Wednesday, May 9 at Boston’s House of Blues.

NEVY Awards

With a focus on the regional business community, nominees – selected by the NEVYs Academy, comprised of investors from the region’s top venture capital firms – are both locally headquartered and locally backed. The Company of the Year in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Blockchain Technology nomination goes to companies exemplifying New England’s leading place in the industry.

RapidMiner has flown somewhat under the radar in the Boston tech startup scene, and it’s time to change that (who runs marketing at RapidMiner anyway?!) At the recent Gartner Data and Analytics summit in London, one of our largest automotive customers presented on how a team of 5 data scientists using RapidMiner delivered 10m£ in business value in 4 months. Artificial intelligence platforms like RapidMiner are providing organizations with new ways to turn data into a huge competitive advantage.

In the past 12 months, we’ve achieved a number of important company milestones. Our community grew to over 330,000 users, making it the largest community of data scientists. KDNuggets readers identified RapidMiner as the most popular general data science platform. Gartner identified RapidMiner as a Leader in the Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms Magic Quadrant (for the fifth year in a row!). We released RapidMiner 8.0 and RapidMiner Auto Model, a new way for users to build better predictive models, faster.

Many of Boston’s best tech startups including Toast, Acquia, Wayfair, and Drift have won NEVY awards in the past, and it would be a fantastic achievement for RapidMiner to take the stage on May 9th as a winner in such a highly competitive category.
