Recommendations

Dylan Boyd Managing Director at LA Dodgers Sports Entertainment Technolo

I have had the opportunity to talk and meet with Prem. I am impressed with his approach to the business, ability to advance the development of a platform with a small team, and his openness of thought to take feedback and think about his solution in new ways. I believe what he has built by listening to customers, having the background in this field, and being one of the leaders in this area that Prem will build a successful company. If given the mentoring and guidance from a program he will move mountains.

Alejandro Russo CEO at Candela Mamajuana

Prem has extensive experience in machine learning and big data. I'm sure him and his team will turn all this experience into a product that has capabilities no other has.

Foster Provost

Prem is one of the top thinkers--and doers--in social media analytics. As a Research Scientist at one of the world's top data science labs (Machine Learning and Decision Analytics at IBM Research), he repeatedly produced outstanding, practically useful methods and innovative applications. His exciting work at Social Alpha reflects this same combination of innovativeness and practical utility. I'd bet on Prem and his team to deliver on the promise of extracting useful financial signals from social media data.

Herzel Hakimi

Greg Bujak was my tech lead for around one year. During that period our group delivered a great deal of functionality without Greg's leadership it would not have been possible. He is very knowledgeable and always available to help team members.

Aravind Vijayakirthi

I've known Greg for almost a decade and worked with him for about 7 years. Greg is a technologist par excellence. His standards are exacting, he strives to attain a crystal clear understanding of the complexities of the problem space, and above all, he brings an intense, "get it done" attitude to projects.

With Greg as a co-founder, I'm confident that Social Alpha is poised to bring an exciting, thoughtfully designed and highly useful product to market.

Arie Abecassis Advisor at FitBark

Prem is a thought leader in "big data" analytics, and with Social Alpha, he is building a platform that has the potential to change how financial industry professionals leverage social media. He and his team have the talent and vision to go far. I have been involved in other startups that have benefited from this program, and think this is a great fit.
