Our Story

Appsolutely was established in 2014 by Palantir Ventures to provide a rapid, cost effective execution capability when a businesses opportunity needed to be operationally enabled.

Through Palantir’s relationships with Bloor Research, a 30 year old leading technology research and analysis house, we are able to discover and select the most effective and interesting automation technologies.

Since then we have become a strategic partner with Crowd Machine and Global IDs, and have supported them in the execution of their own projects and product development. This gives us unrivalled experience and unequalled access to both the technologists and executives in our partner firms.
