How did you get the idea for your company? The idea for NewtonX formed when I was with McKinsey & Company, and realized that there was a massive pain point both in the management consulting industry and across enterprise organizations: Access to expert knowledge from C-suite executives, global influencers or niche subject matter experts didn’t exist in the market. My colleagues and I consistently needed reliable data from highly specific populations to effectively do our jobs, but had no way of accessing this data at scale. Additionally, I often needed this access under tight time constraints, but no firm in the market would be able to give me the access I needed by my deadline. In this, I saw a missed opportunity for automation – the industry is a perfect use case for AI today.
