PHOENIX & SAN FRANCISCO – Alpine Investors (“Alpine”), a people-driven private equity firm, today announced the launch of predictis, its newly formed data software business platform. In conjunction with the launch, predictis announced its partnership with Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. Alpine plans to invest equity capital to fund the organic and inorganic growth of predictis.
predictis will focus on partnering with world-class data software businesses and entrepreneurs across multiple industry verticals to unleash the ultimate power of data. The platform plans to do this by deploying data-specific playbooks around areas such as governance, security, pricing, go to market and talent. Today’s partnership announcement with Ethisphere builds upon predictis’ existing partnership with AirDNA, a leading provider of short-term rental data and insights.
Jean-Marc Levy leads the new data platform as CEO of predictis. Jean-Marc has over 30 years of experience in data and information services and has held several board and CEO roles at high-growth venture and PE-backed data and technology companies. Prior to joining predictis, Jean-Marc served as CEO of ComplySci, where he led the growth of the company into an award-winning provider of compliance and risk management solutions used by thousands of institutions globally.
“predictis was founded on the thesis that partnering with vertical software-enabled data businesses will empower founders and entrepreneurs to scale their businesses as they set out to democratize data and unlock its transformative power,” said Jean-Marc. “We are thrilled to welcome Ethisphere, our second data business, into the predictis platform. With this partnership and our current partnership with AirDNA, we are on our way to building a group of market-leading data software companies. With Alpine’s support, we have the ability to provide our current and future business partners with access to exceptional talent, operating expertise and thought leadership.”
