We connect decision makers to rich and dynamic non-financial risk insights on public and private firms in a wide range of industries, using our proprietary KeyStone Compact platforms. Tested and validated in global economies, our company delivers granular and actionable analytics for investors, policy makers, business owners, and strategic management teams.
The company was founded in 2014, based on empirical research from over 600 companies across the business lifecycle. We set out to understand the tacit knowledge gained by entrepreneurs, investors and strategic managers as they evolve professionally to build value and investment momentum for their companies. The KeyStone Compact suite of tools codifies and learns from this tacit (non-financial) knowledge, with company stage, geographic region and industry sector granularity.

Algorithmic Assessment of Non-Financial (Forward-Looking) Risk Metrics
Value Capture Position
Industry view of the firm
How can the assets of the company be leveraged in the industry ecosystem or value chain where the company seeks to innovate or capture market value? Differentiation of the company's assets, and dependencies relative to other actors in the value chain are key.
Investment Grade - Emerging Firms
Investor view of the firm
Given the value capture position, what is the investment opportunity in the company: bootstrap, non-equity, or equity investment models? Upside potential, and time-value of capital to achieve scale are key.
Investment Potential - Corporations
Strategic view of the firm
For large corporates, given the position of the company in the industry, the grade of the new line of business ranges from opportunistic or competitive to more aggressive market entries marked by strategic or expansional investments.
