Team Story

Outliers. Change Makers.

The innovation story of PredictionWorks is a courageous journey that began in 1997 when a group of venture industry “outsiders” began collaborating on an idea. The idea was to increase the accuracy and acceleration of the new venture conception process by a 5-10x factor over conventional standards. Since start-up companies and new-growth initiatives by seasoned companies fail 80% of the time, our founders believed that improving the success rate would make a real impact in the world. The inspiration for discovering the solution was provided by the father of process theory Edwards Deming. Deming’s 90-10 process law states that 90% of the outcome of any process occurs in the first 10% of the process. Against some mighty odds, our founders began PredictionWorks’ development of our New Venture Assessor, a tool to be used in the front-end of venture design and decision making.
