About Attest

Founded in 2015, Attest is a SaaS technology company based in London and New York. It exists to generate increased confidence for every decision, by making consumer research easy and actionable for all.

Attest believes that each business's customers hold the key to solving their problems and unlocking their opportunities. Its technology and software includes a wide range of machine learning and artificial intelligence applications that help continuously improve data quality and analysis, to help clients make better decisions.

The Attest platform enables companies to engage directly with over 100 million consumers across 49 countries, starting in 90 seconds. Attest helps you engage with the consumers you need to know the most but can naturally reach the least, to learn, measure and grow ever-faster, across marketing, product, brand, innovation, competition, pricing and beyond. Attest enables its clients to reach and understand new consumer groups, needs, trends and behaviours, on-demand, very easily, any time. By dramatically simplifying the process of gathering the highest quality consumer data and the most actionable results, it is transforming an entire industry, expanding a very large market, and making consumer research accessible to entirely new areas of demand and action.

Attest's ever-expanding client roster ranges from enterprises like Oracle, Microsoft and Discovery, to fast-growth companies like Transferwise, Manscaped and Klarna, among many others. 2020 has seen it scale strongly, with ARR growing rapidly to $7m and the team growing from 66 to 125 over the course of the year, with further exponential growth anticipated in 2021 and beyond. Attest is backed by investors including NEA, one of Silicon Valley's most prolific venture capital firms with over 225 portfolio company IPOs since 1977.
